Internet Governance Forum-USA
Washington, D.C., July 18, 2011

The third Internet Governance Forum-USA extending the multistakeholder effort to illuminate issues and cultivate constructive discussions about the future of the Internet took place July 18, 2011, at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. The one-day event focused on the evolution of the Internet and the way forward. The IGF-USA multistakeholder leadership group will present a report from this meeting at the global IGF in Nairobi, Kenya, in September, sharing a recap of key highlights from this national forum.

A multimedia journalism team from the Imagining the Internet Center at Elon University assembled accounts of the major action from 14 events.
