How to improve inclusion in the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) process through online resources, tools, and facilitation was one of the points of discussion at the IGF 2015 Open Consultations and Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) meetings in Geneva during the week of 2 December. A small but significant semantic point clearly highlights a change in attitude and perception of what has often been called ‘remote’ participation.

If we all live around the world, where is ‘remote’ actually located? I live in the Americas, so Geneva is remote for me. Few of the meeting participants are...

Approach

The Geneva Internet Conference (#IGeneva), which is being organised as a focal event of the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP), is a process with a number of preparatory and follow-up activities. Users and communities worldwide are participating in interactive sessions via e-participation and remote hubs. Before the conference, substantive discussions will focus on key themes to inform the design of the conference and to facilitate dialogue between the IG and other policy communities (security, migration, climate...

There is less than a month to go to the Geneva Internet Conference. Scheduled for 18‒19 November, the conference will wrap up a very busy year in Internet governance (IG) and lay the basis for a decisive 2015.

2014 has been the year of  ‘a hundred blooming flowers’ with many organisations trying to advance ideas and concepts for the future of IG. Let’s take a look at what has been done so far this year.

Up to now, the major event was NETmundial (São Paulo, April 2014), co-organised by the President of Brazil and the Internet...

For the following analysis, we selected 31 IG-specific words and phrases. We extracted their frequency distributions across 91 IGF sessions, and then computed the distances between them[i] in order to be able to represent them spatially. The initial spatial representation is high-dimensional and thus not of much use for the human visual system. We then applied a dimensionality-reduction technique[ii]  to represent these words and phrases in 2D and 3D spaces (a 2D space is...

The four days of the 9th Annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF), held in Istanbul, Turkey, 2‒5 September 2014, coincided with interesting developments in Diplo's methodological approach to Internet governance (IG). The IGF provided us with the opportunity to study the statistical properties of the emerging language of Internet Diplomacy as it unfolded before us in numerous workshops and sessions. Our experiments and exercises were conducted in the scope of the development of Diplo Text-Analytics Framework (DTAF). This analytical framework utilises...

[New] The 6th edition of the book has just published.

Although Internet governance deals with the core of the digital world, governance cannot be handled with the digital-binary logic of the true or false, or good or bad. Instead, the subject demands many subtleties and shades of meaning and perception, requiring an analogue approach, covering a continuum of options and compromises. The aim of this book, now in its...
