This is the week of Internet (Un)Governance Forums- #IGF2014 #ungov #FHDel

In Uncategorized on September 1, 2014 at 11:33

Day 0 starts today with some pre-meeting events. There will be a public Freedom House reception in Taksim. I will attend the IGF as a Freedom House delegate. All FH delegates are listed here in this Twitter list (and they contribute at #FHDel). In addition to this massive event IGF 2014, there will be an alternative event that will take place in my own campus: Internet Ungovernance Forum.  They are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Although some boycott IGF and only attend the latter, many activists are planning to attend Ungovernance Forum, too. I will try to make best of all organizations. and hopefully pin down some notes. I will probably be more active at my Twitter account but without ignoring my beloved blog…

The Internet Belongs to Everyone

Next week, I will travel to Istanbul, Turkey to lead the U.S. delegation to the 9th Annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF).  This year, more than 3,000 participants from all continents representing different stakeholder groups — governments, private sector, civil society, technical community and academia — will attend the IGF.
