Panel Session III: - The Future of Internet Governance

The internet, one of the most disruptive technologies of the 20th century, arose primarily from networking research in the United States and Europe. Most of the essential management functions that have enabled its dramatic growth – including the development of technical interoperability standards and the management of domain names – have been guided from the U.S. With more than 3 billion internet users now worldwide, the internet is increasingly seen as a personal and business necessity and demand for a more global dimension to internet governance has increased. 2014 has been a critical year in the internet governance debate with the multi-stakeholder approach moving to the centre of the debate at NetMundial and the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). 2015 will be an equally important year given the debate around the future of ICANN and the IANA functions. This panel will explore visions of how the internet can be governed in the future in ways that serve well the needs of its diverse stakeholders today and in the foreseeable future, and will allow changes in governance as the internet evolves further.
