About the Dynamic Coalition:

The Coalition has been in existence since 2008, and has adopted the
following aims (taken from early Coalition documents):

"The objective of the dynamic coalition on 'Core Internet Values’ is to
debate and find answers to fundamental questions such as “What is the
Internet? What makes it what it is? What are its architectural principles?
What are the core principles and values? And what is happening to the core
values in the process of its evolution? What is it that needs to be
preserved and what changes are inevitable? The coalition would seek answers
and define the Core Internet Principles and Values. "

"The Internet model is open, transparent, and collaborative and relies on
processes and products that are local, bottom-up, and accessible to users
around the world. These principles and values are threatened when
policy makers propose to regulate and control the Internet, with inadequate
understanding of the core values. What is it that must be preserved in the
process of policy making by legislators who seek to regulate the Internet
and in the process of design changes by the Business sector in pursuit of
business friendly models? What does the Internet Community say as what
can't be changed? How could changes and improvements be brought
about without compromising on the core values? How would the different
positions between stakeholders be reconciled to commit to the core Internet

On the theme of Core Internet Values, the first was a workshop with the
title "Workshop on Fundamentals: Core Internet Values" chaired by the
Internet Society President Lynn St.Amour at IGF Egypt followed by three
Annual meetings during the IGFs with the fourth IGF meeting to be held
during IGF Bali.
