WEBCAST JAN 19 – CITI Webinar – Whither the Internet Governance Forum?

ISOC LOn Thursday January 19 2023 at 11:00-12:30 EST (16:00-17:30 UTC) the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information presents a webinar ‘Whither the Internet Governance Forum?‘. There’s been much debate both within the IGF ecosystem and among governments (including EU heads of state), and in UN SG Guterres’ Global Digital Compact process, about the future of the IGF and whether and how it could be institutionally reformed to enhance its outputs and make them more politically salient. In 2025 the UN GA will decide on whether to renew the IGF’s mandate as part of its WSIS+20 review process. An expert panel will explore the options and prognosis.
