IGF Code of Conduct

Those who take part in any Internet Governance Forum (IGF) multi-stakeholder process (in-person meetings, virtual meetings, mailing list discussions, etc.) agree to:

·         Treat all members of the IGF community equally, irrespective of nationality, gender, racial or ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, disability, age, or sexual orientation; all stakeholders of the IGF community should treat each other with civility, both face to face and online.

·         Act in a reasonable, objective and informed manner when participating in and/or using any IGF discussion platform.

·         Listen and respect the views of all stakeholders when considering IGF policy issues. The IGF is a multistakeholder environment and those who take part in IGF meetings and inter-sessional activities should acknowledge the importance of all stakeholders and seek to understand their points of view.

·         Facilitate transparency and openness when participating in Internet governance-related policy discussions.

·         Act fairly and in good faith with other participants in IGF processes.

·         Promote ethical and responsible behavior. Ethics and integrity are essential, and the IGF expects all stakeholders to behave in a responsible and principled way.


Failure to adhere to the above guidelines and principles may result in removal from IGF Secretariat-hosted activities.
