14TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE INTERNET GOVERNANCE FORUM
25 November 2019 - 29 November 2019
Three Thematic Focus Areas in the IGF 2019 Programme At its first face-to-face meeting in January, and following extensive discussions on a strategic, thematic direction for IGF activities in 2019, the IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) identified three priority themes on which to build a focused and cohesive programme this year.
These are, (1) Data Governance; (2) Digital Inclusion; and (3) Security, Safety, Stability & Resilience. The priority areas were arrived at based on contributions from 2018 IGF activities, the annual IGF stocktaking process, and the ‘Call for Issues’ for the 2019 programme.
These were open to everyone and more than 300 submissions were received in the Call for Issues alone. These processes formed the basis of the MAG’s discussions and ensured that the programme topics are those that the global community deemed most critical and timely to Internet governance stakeholders and societies at large.
