Another highly topical discussion from the dynamic DC duo of ISOC DC and
the IIEP. With the NMI staggering
into existence, and now a new kid on the block  - the Internet Social Forum
<http://justnetcoalition.org/ISF> rattling the cage, and the old stalwart
the IGF going intersessional
multistakeholder opportunities for governments to engage the Internet
community are expanding pell-mell! As the WSIS review
<http://www.itu.int/wsis/review/2014.html> looms, there is an urgency to
get ducks lined up..

NYC will be well represented at this one. Not only is Veni now based back
in town as he tackles the UN, but moderator Nancy Scola is also an emigre
from our fair city. Plus I (Joly) will be traveling down myself to run the

Today,* Monday 26 January 2015* the *Greater Washington DC Chapter of the
Internet Society <http://www.isoc-dc.org/>* (ISOC-DC) and the *Institute of
International Economic Policy <http://www.gwu.edu/~iiep/> *(IIEP)
present *Governments
and Internet Governance
*. Despite their long experience in global and domestic governance,
policymakers from many nations struggle to find their way in Internet
governance. On one hand, only governments can join international
organizations such as the UN or WTO. However, the same governments do not
have a privileged role in Internet governance institutions such as the
Internet Governance Forum (IGF); the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN); or the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF),
where governments are just one among many actors. Meanwhile, many other
stakeholders are increasingly concerned about increased participation by
governments in the technical infrastructure and governance bodies that
underpin the Internet. This event will examine several different
perspectives on participation by governments in Internet governance.
