  • Open Forum Title
    The Economics of an Open Internet
  • Description
    The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) provides a multi-stakeholder policy forum to maximise the benefits of information and communication technologies and the Internet as drivers of innovation, productivity, growth, sustainable development and social well-being.
    The focus of this year’s forum will be on the many economic layers and dimensions composing the open Internet in a holistic manner. The OECD will engage with policy experts, economists, the technical community and civil society to discuss the different possible approaches to assessing the economics of the open Internet. This session will be an opportunity to update the IGF on OECD’s ongoing work in this area and to discuss the OECD Ministerial on the Digital Economy to be held in Mexico City in 2016.
    * The OECD approach to the Internet economy is guided by the Internet Policy Making Principles (IPPs) adopted in 2011. The mapping of relevant work underpinning the IPPs is available in the attachment
