The 2016 Internet Governance Forum (IGF): 'Enabling Inclusive and Sustainable Growth' will be held from 6 to 9 December 2016, in Guadalajara, Mexico.
The 2016 IGF marks the first IGF following its 10-year mandate renewal by the General Assembly at the WSIS+10 High Level Event last year. The overall programme is being built in a bottom-up manner in consultation with the growing IGF community, supported by multi-stakeholder intersessional activities, with a view to enhancing wide-ranging and diverse multistakeholder participation, including stakeholders from developing countries, youth, newcomers to the IGF and those joining online.
The four-day 11th IGF meeting will feature interactive dialogue and debate and will address a broad range of themes and issues including, but not limited to: Internet and Sustainable Development; Access and Diversity; Youth and Gender Issues; Human Rights and Freedom of Expression Online; Cybersecurity; Multistakeholder Cooperation; Critical Internet Resources; Internet Governance Capacity Building and Emerging Issues.
Again this year, EIF will participate and will help organize side meetings for the European Parliament delegation in collaboration with the EP administration and the European Commission delegation.
EIF members are invited to inform the EIF Secretariat about their participation at the IGF 2016. EIF will host a meeting jointly with EuroDIG in the evening of 6 December.
