UK Internet Governance Forum

The UK Internet Governance Forum is a collaborative partnership between Nominet, the UK Department for Culture, Media & Sport, key parliamentarians and other organisations taking a leading role in making the internet a better place.

Its aim is to provide a local forum in the UK that engages industry, government, parliament, academia and civil society in debate on Internet Governance issues. As well as encouraging partnerships and coalitions that deliver solutions and demonstrate best practice for others to learn from.

Other influential stakeholder groups that are taking part include the London Internet Exchange, the Children’s Charities Coalition for Internet Safety, The Internet Watch Foundation, Raceonline 2012 and Childnet.
