The webinar will reflect on the 2011 Internet Governance Forum, which was held in Nairobi at the end of September. The IGF gathered more than 2,000 participants and generated a vivid debate on the future of Internet governance.
The underlying theme, both in workshops and corridor discussions, was the future architecture of the global Internet governance. It is the reason why the webinar will focus on the following main questions:
Firstly, is the Internet moving into a global policy ‘premier league’ alongside climate change, migration and security? Secondly, how can the balance be preserved between the IGF's multistakeholderism and the growing demands of governments to have more say in the way Internet is governed globally? Thirdly, what could be a possible role of the IGF in the emerging architecture of global Internet governance, which includes ICANN, ITU, and a wide range of other organisations and players?
Registrations are now closed.
