Assessing The Legitimacy Of Structures and Processes: An Open Forum On Internet Governance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the next chapter of global Internet Governance (IG)?

Within such a potentially charged environment, we assess the legitimacy and roles that institutions, stakeholders and issue areas might play in global IG.
