The Internet Governance Forum: Internationalizing ICANN

GuyPardon Guy Pardon Profile: GuyPardon

The inaugural Internet Governance Forum took place from October 30 through November 2, 2006, in Athens, Greece.

The IGF Web site, which features text transcription of the opening ceremony and sessions on openness, security,
diversity, access and emerging issues was “set up to support the process started by the UN Secretary-General with a view to convening a new forum for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue.”

Archived webcasts of the proceedings are also available, in untranslated form, in English, Français and Español. The opening ceremony featured words from Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn. Much of the dialogue at the event was marked by implicit – and some times explicit – criticisms by delegates of US authority over ICANN.

The Secretariat’s informal summary of all the sessions is available here as a PDF.
