Space of options

The 6th Russian Internet Governance forum is taking place at a critical moment for the global Internet community. In a year before the World Summit on the Information Society, which is to take place at the end of 2015, it has become clear that governments needs to focus more on the Internet governance and national segments of the Web. At the same time the stakeholders – government, the technical community, business and civil society – are seeking new ways to deal with current security challenges, increase the level of trust on the web, uphold human rights and ensure the digital economy development. These challenges require consensus and coordinated approach in the space of options for the Internet governance ecosystem’s.

The 6th Russian Internet Governance Forum will take place on April 7, 2015 in Moscow, Russia. The event is hosted by the Coordination Center for TLD RU/РФ and the Technical Center of Internet, and supported by ICANN and RAEC.
