Internet Governance Public Session
Discussion and dialogue on the WSIS+10 Review; the continuation of the IGF and related Internet Governance issues.
While ICANN (with the IANA Stewardship Transition) has been prominent in the Internet Governance Ecosystem, there are other important developments taking place, not least at the UNGA in December 2015 where the outcomes of the WSIS process (initiated in 2005) will be discussed. This discussion could have fundamental implications for Internet Governance in general and for the multi-stakeholder approach that ICANN enshrines in particular. The session will also look at related issues such as the future of the IGF and other platforms, such as that which is being created under the NETMundial Initiative.
