The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) has come a long way in its 16 years. What is it today, and what should its future look like?
At the IGF we often concentrate on specific themes which might be technical, like the domain name system, or more generic such as access or cybersecurity. The challenges I’m going to raise today are more fundamental issues that affect the internet as a whole.
Civil society organisations encourage IGF organisers to continue to privilege the remote modality of meeting until the pandemic is under control in all parts of the world, and clear and inclusive rules and practices are adopted concerning vaccination and travel restrictions.
This year's Internet Governance Forum (IGF) will take place from 12 to 14 November at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France. The overall theme of the event is “Internet of Trust”. We are heading to Paris to capture the activities and highlights of #IGF2018, and we hope to see you there.
