Preparatory meeting: the Internet Governance Forum in Bali

EIF Breakfast Debate


This preparatory meeting will offer an opportunity to exchange views with stakeholders ahead of the participation of the European Parliament and European Commission delegations in the next Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

This year’s IGF will take place in Bali from 22 to 25 October. The preparatory discussion will focus on the long-term internet governance issues and the associated timelines (starting with Bali 2013 and up to the WSIS+10 review in 2015). What are the key issues to be addressed at the IGF and global levels to ensure that internet governance remains multistakeholder-based and dedicated to the overall growth of the internet and focused on the developing world. In this context, what are the key issues specifically facing the EU and how to ensure that the EU views remained coordinated and listened to by the world community?
