Internet Governance Forum


El Foro de Gobernanza de Internet (IGF) sirve para unir a la gente de diferentes grupos de interés como iguales, en los debates sobre cuestiones de política pública relacionadas con Internet. Aunque no existe una solución negociada, el IGF informa e inspira a los que tienen poder de toma de decisiones, tanto en el sector público como privado. En su reunión anual los delegados discuten, intercambiar información y compartir las buenas prácticas entre sí. El IGF facilita una comprensión común de cómo maximizar las oportunidades de Internet, los riesgos y desafíos que surgen en diferentes sentidos.
