The Internet has become a vitally important social infrastructure that profoundly impacts our societies.

Internet governance must be truly democratic.
In order to achieve those goals, we put forward principles that should underpin the emergence of an Internet that advances human rights and social justice globally, and the reconfiguration of Internet governance into a truly democratic space.
