This EIF breakfast will provide participants with a briefing and an exchange of views ahead of the fifth annual Internet Governance Forum which will take place in Vilnius from 14 to 17 September.
The key themes to be addressed in Vilnius include: managing critical internet resources; security, openness and privacy; access and diversity; Internet governance for development (IG4D); emerging issues such as cloud computing; and internet governance issues.
