PNMA Multistakeholder Working Group

The Policy Network on Meaningful Access (PNMA)'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 PNMA, its methodology and the so far ‎produced outputs.

Within the PNMA there is a Multistakeholder Working Group (MWG) of experts which ‎supports transforming community’s expressed views into concrete actions, such as outputs and actionable next steps. Its members for the 2023 IGF cycle are below.
