Internet Governance Forum - USA
Washington, D.C., July 21, 2010

The second Internet Governance Forum - USA continued the multistakeholder effort to illuminate issues and cultivate constructive discussions about the future of the Internet. It took place July 21, 2010, at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. The one-day event focused on the changing Internet and the way forward. The IGF-USA multistakeholder group was also represented at the global IGF later in the year, in Vilnius, Lithuania Sept. 16, where they shared a recap of key highlights from the national forum.
