The Internet Governance Forum
Welcome to the website of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), a multistakeholder platform that enables the discussion of public policy issues pertaining to the Internet. For more information on the IGF and its mandate, click here.
The IGF will hold its 10th annual meeting in João Pessoa, Brazil, on 10 to 13 November 2015. We not only hope to welcome you at this meeting (in person or via a remote hub), but we also encourage you to become involved in the diversity of intersessional activities currently underway.
Intersessional activities are pursued in the months between annual IGFs with the aim of helping the IGF produce more tangible outputs that can become robust resources. These include best practice forums (BPFs), dynamic coalitions and a new activity related to enabling Internet access, namely Policy Options for Connecting the Next Billion.
