What's in store for IGF 2019? The five-day meeting, themed One World. One Net. One Vision, includes a large number of workshops, open forums, dynamic coalition meetings, outputs of intersessional activities, and other events that will give participants the opportunity to engage in open discussions on multiple Internet governance and digital policy issues. National and regional IGF initiatives (NRIs) shared experiences and discussed about their specificities, challenges, and plans for the future. Several main sessions were part of the programme; the main themes this year were data governance; digital inclusion; and safety, security, stability and resilience. For more information, read about the IGF process on our dedicated page and visit the official IGF 2019 website.
