Abstract

According to habitués, you can’t really make any claims about the IGF until you have attended at least three of them. Since I’ve only been to two, I apparently can’t really comment. However I also met a few people who were regular attendants who were ambivalent about attending again. Some themes seem perpetual: the benefits of internet use are not equally distributed across the world or across lines of gender and class. A small number of people have a large influence on how decisions about the internet are made, and the discussions at the IGF, as flawed as they are, are still among the very few ways for civil society actors to raise such issues.
