This session, organised by the ICANN Cross Community Working Group on
Internet Governance (CCWG IG) will look at varying patterns and examples of
multi stakeholder engagement across a number of different fora, contrasting
their effectiveness and potential lessons to be learned. The views and
experiences of all those presents will be valuable for this Roundtable discussion.

The Session will be constructive and positive, but will not shy away from controversy, noting successes and failures in the development of Internet public policy by different bodies and organisations in  recent years.

Participants will include members of the ICANN Community, as well as representatives from other organisations and bodies involved in Internet public policy development.
