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.

IGF Activities

The global IGF 2015 is scheduled to be held in João Pessoa, Brazil, on 10-13 November 2015.

To enrich the potential for IGF outputs, the IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) has developed an intersessional programme called ”Policy Options for Connecting the Next Billion”. The programme is to complement other intersessional IGF activities, and the outputs from this programme are intended to become robust resources, to serve as inputs into other pertinent forums, and to evolve and grow over time.

More information is available on the programme's dedicated web page, and all interested stakeholders are strongly encouraged to provide their own contribution using the online form available here.
