Internet Governance Forum 2013

When It Happened: October  22-25, 2013

Where It Happened: Bali Indonesia (Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center)

Theme: Multistakeholder Works

While the Internet has proven its success from economic, development, technological, and societal perspectives, its continued growth as a multistakeholder platform cannot be taken for granted. 
The Internet Society strongly believes that to ensure a sustainable Internet, the Internet must maintain its core characteristics of open, global and interoperable technical standards for innovation; open access and freedom of expression for all users; openness for business and economic progress; based on a collaborative, inclusive, multistakeholder governance model.
