PNIF Multistakeholder Working Group

The Policy Network on Internet Fragmentation (PNIF)'s driving force is a community of diverse stakeholders aiming to contribute with their ‎expertise and experience. All interested stakeholders can join an open dedicated mailing list and take active participation through regular meetings and others means of collaboration. ‎

The community is continuously consulted on the thematic focus of the PNIF, its methodology and the so far ‎produced outputs.

Within the PNIF is a Multistakeholder Working Group of experts which ‎supports transforming community’s expressed views into concrete actions, such as outputs and actionable next steps.
