Dynamic Coalition on Trade (DC-Trade)

Dynamic Coalition on Trade

 

Many Internet governance issues that are discussed at the IGF are also the subject of rulemaking through bilateral, plurilateral and multilateral trade agreements. The purpose of this Dynamic Coalition is to provide an interface for the exchange of information and best practices between the negotiators of these trade agreements and the bodies in which they work, and the Internet Governance Forum and its multi-stakeholder community. This information exchange will be both substantive (that is, concerning particular Internet public policy issues) and also procedural (that is, about how Internet public policy can be developed in a transparent and inclusive way).
