Collaborative Governance Project

A Multistakeholder Initiative of the Internet Society

The project mission is: to expand the global knowledge and use of collaborative governance processes to solve problems and develop norms.

Key activities are:

  • Convening stakeholders to solve concrete problems and develop norms on a consensus basis;
  • Training stakeholders on how to be effective in collaborative governance discussions; and,
  • Building and promoting academic research and writing on collaborative governance approaches.

Under the leadership of Larry Strickling and Fiona Asonga, the project will initially concentrate on building support for collaborative governance approaches globally. We will actively engage stakeholders in the development and evolution of the project.

At EuroDIG 2018 on June 6, 2018, Larry Strickling issued a call to action to people to join in this multistakeholder effort on Internet policy.

At the State of the Net 2018 conference on January 29, 2018, Larry Strickling spoke about the rationale, background and aims of this new project.
