Internet Governance Forum - USA

The Internet Governance Forum-USA is a multistakeholder effort to illuminate issues and cultivate constructive discussions about the future of the Internet. It provides a local forum in the US to engage civil society, government, people from the technology and research sector, business people and academics, helping to create partnerships and coalitions that move dialogues forward and demonstrate best practices. The annual events focus on the changing Internet and the way forward for the international Internet Governance Forum, an initiative founded out of the processes of the World Summit on the Information Society that are facilitated by the United Nations.
