About the IGF
The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is an opportunity for multi-stakeholder dialogue on public policy issues related to key elements of Internet governance, such as the Internet’s sustainability, robustness, security, stability, access and development.
The IGF was first convened in 2006 by the United Nations Secretary-General in Athens, Greece. Since then, the IGF has grown, with local and regional IGF meetings taking place all over the world to discuss issues of local relevance, as well as to provide inputs for the global IGF. Trinidad and Tobago has been involved in the IGF from inception, with locals playing major roles in its conception, as well as in the creation, facilitation and moderation of sessions.
The Trinidad and Tobago Multistakeholder Advisory Group (TTMAG) aims to continue the mandate of the United Nations Secretary-General, to:
- maximize the opportunity for open, inclusive dialogue and the exchange of ideas on Internet governance (IG) related issues;
- create opportunities to share best practices and experiences;
- identify emerging issues and bring them to the attention of the relevant bodies and the general public;
- contribute to capacity building for Internet governance;
- facilitate inclusive, productive discussions on Internet-related public policy issues from a general perspective, while keeping all stakeholders involved.
The IGF is valued as a resource for networking with peers, a forum for sharing information and experiences and “a non-judgmental venue for members to openly discuss their challenges and perspectives.”
