What it is | The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is getting ready to its 4th meeting in Sharm El-Sheikh in November 2009. The IGF held its second public consultation in preparations for the 4th meeting in Geneva on 16-17 September 2009. One key item on the agenda of the coming IGF meeting is that related to the desirability to extending its mandate beyond its 5-year term. The workshop aims at briefing the ICANN community on these discussions as well as on the way going forward.

Why it's Important | Internet Governance addresses a wide range of topics that are of interest to the ICANN's participants. This workshop is an opportunity to inform the ICANN community of the latest updates with regard to the IGF and its activities.

Who should attend? | Participants who have been following the Internet Governance process, and those who may be interested in the global policy aspects of ICANN and the wider Internet governance issues.
