|Specific Issues for Discussion
|Today’s Internet is evolving and developing fast. Its social impact is profound. Its economic impact has now extended to the point where most forms of commerce are dependent upon its smooth functioning.
Some of the challenges the Internet is presenting today aren’t being solved - not by Internet governance and not by governments. As well, there are gaps in the breadth and depth of participation in Internet governance that weaken its ability to do its core functions or consider ways to solve the broader challenges - let alone prepare for the future.
Future development of the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance needs to start with an understanding that not all stakeholders feel that they are included in that model.
To build and rebuild trust in the Internet and to shape its evolution, Internet governance needs diverse participation from all stakeholder groups across the region. It must be inclusive and open, not limited to certain counties or certain stakeholders. The same applies to other emerging technologies - they need open, multistakeholder governance too.
It may be that new institutional or coordination initiatives are needed to solve new problems, align existing processes better, or drive faster innovation and growth.
|Describe the Relevance of Your Session to APrIGF
|Trust can be built through inclusive dialogue to shape how governance is done. The Asia Pacific region has diverse views on Internet governance, in keeping with the diversity of our societies and cultures. Having input on the future of the Internet governance system from this region is vital. It can then be shared with the Internet Governance Forum and other relevant processes (e.g. the Global Digital Compact, or the WSIS+20 review.
To achieve this goal, this session will share perspectives on concrete ideas for evolving the governance framework and be strongly focused on ideas and suggestions from the audience.
Outcomes we hope for include
Shared knowledge of stakeholder views on these matters
Insight to bring to the IGF as well as to the GDC and WSIS+20 processes
Engaging more stakeholders in this dialogue
Proposals and ideas to enable the Internet governance system to be ready and to have the necessary flexibility to shape the Internet’s future
