UK Internet Governance Forum Meeting 2022
Event type: Hybrid (in-person and virtual)
The UK Internet Governance Forum (UK IGF) is the national IGF for the United Kingdom. IGFs are an initiative led by the United Nations for the discussion of public policy issues relating to the internet. A key distinguishing feature of IGFs is that they are based on the multi-stakeholder model – all sectors of society meet as equals to exchange ideas and discuss best practices. The purpose of IGFs is to facilitate a common understanding of how to maximise the opportunities of the internet whilst mitigating the risks and challenges that the internet presents. Messages from the UK IGF are compiled into a report and carried to the Global UN IGF.
The UK IGF is organised in a bottom-up manner. The content of the programme is initiated and shaped by all participating stakeholders and open for everyone. The UK IGF has a steering committee and secretariat. The committee members can be found at ukigf.org.uk/committee and the secretariat is provided by Nominet, the UK’s national domain name registry.
