Event Description

The NETmundial meeting and the IANA transition process dominated most of the 2014 developments, bringing Internet governance (IG) to a crossroads. 2015 will be a decisive year in which stakeholders will agree on post-2015 agendas. What can we expect in the coming months, and which issues are likely to be a priority?

Other developments helped shape the IG debate in 2014, including the NETmundial Initiative (NMI), the ‘Google judgment’ on the right to be forgotten, and the Geneva Internet Conference. In 2015, stakeholders are expected to agree on the implementation of WSIS Beyond 2015 and a post-2015 sustainable development agenda. The decision on the renewal of the IGF - whose mandate expires in 2015 - is also expected soon.

The beginning of every year presents a good opportunity to reflect on the previous year and make predictions. Join us online on 27 January 2015 for the annual ‘crystal ball’ exercise with Diplo director Dr Jovan Kurbalija. If you’re in Geneva, join us in situ at 7 bis Avenue de la Paix, Geneva (WMO building, 2nd floor).

Register here to join us online or in situ, on Tuesday, 27th January, 2015, at 12:00 UTC (13:00 CET). Attendance is free; registration is required.
