BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

The workshop objective is to contribute to the ITU's process that will prepare its inputs and position vis-Ó-vis the United Nations working group to be established on Internet governance, resulting from the Declaration of Principles and Action Plan adopted on 12 December 2003 at the first phase of the World Summit on the Information Society.

The workshop will provide a forum for invited experts to exchange views and make analytical studies on definitions, viewpoints and visions on Internet governance from several aspects, including legal, technological, administration and commercial issues.

The format is one of the ITU Strategy and Policy Unit's New Initiatives workshops held since 1999 in line with ITU Council Decision 496. These workshops have limited space availability and are intended to foster efficient and effective discussion among experts on specific topics. To this purpose, individual experts in Internet governance have been invited from a wide spectrum of backgrounds and views, including from the ITU's Membership.

Keeping in mind that the event is an experts workshop, with limited space availability, ITU Members with an interest in participation should contact the  ITU Strategy and Policy Unit at spumail@itu.int, with specific reference to their individual background in Internet governance issues.

All discussions and results from the workshop will be compiled into a report and communicated to the entire ITU Membership and submitted to the appropriate ITU decision-making bodies for their further consideration.
