Internet governance goes global
This chapter deals with the possibilities for democratizing governance of the Internet — that is, ensuring broad and equitable participation in governance processes. The first part of the chapter focuses on the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) held in Geneva in December 2003 and Tunis in November 2005. It provides an overview of the Summit's organizational mechanics, main participants, and principal results. The second part of the chapter focuses on the Internet Governance Forum — the chief organizational result of the Summit. The chapter concludes by drawing up some of the lessons to be learned from the WSIS and IGF discussions, for future global dialogue on Internet governance.
