On 9 October, the European Commission invited European business and civil society representatives for an exchange of information and views on Internet Governance issues, in preparation to the upcoming IGF meeting, that will take place in João Pessoa, Brazil, on 10-13 November 2015.

The European Commission provided a debrief on the most prominent Internet Governance issues, focussing in particular on the IANA transition and ICANN accountability, the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS+10 review) and the future of the IGF and highlighting the interdependencies of these different processes.

During the meeting, participants were encouraged to exchange views on how to ensure a stronger European impact and their expectations on the ongoing Internet Governance processes, considering the intensification of the global discussions in various organisations and fora.

The European Commission is interested in the key messages you would like to be delivered in João Pessoa, as well as details on your engagement/participation in the IGF. Interested stakeholders are welcome to provide input through this page.
