The Internet Society and Policy

Throughout its history, the Internet Society’s core principle that the Internet is for everyone has guided its activities in the realms of Public Policy and Internet Governance. That belief found expression in the Internet Society's early advocacy of the multistakeholder model and it finds expression today in a wide range of global, regional, and local policy initiatives that promote Internet access and development, foster innovation, and work to improve online security and protect privacy. 

By connecting the world, working with others, and advocating for equal access to the Internet, the Internet Society strives to make the world a better place.

In pursuing its public policy objectives, the Internet Society has built a history of working collaboratively and inclusively—with governments, national and international organizations, civil society, the private sector, and other parties to reach decisions about the Internet that conform to its core values.
