The fourth annual conference
The Internet Governance Forum-USA is a national gathering that serves as a preliminary preparation event for the Global Internet Governance Forum processes facilitated by the United Nations. IGF-USA is a multistakeholder gathering for members of civil society, businesses, governments, academia and the technology sector to meet to illuminate key issues, share concerns and best practices and cultivate constructive relationships to work toward a better future. The IGF-USA Steering Committee will present a report from this meeting at the Global IGF in November 2012, in Azerbaijan. A multimedia journalism team of students and alumni from Elon University assembled these accounts.
