IGF-USA Post WCIT Roundtable - Dec 21 2012

IGF-USA Post-WCIT Roundtable Discussion at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington DC on December 21 2012.

The Roundtable participants were from the IGF-USA Steering Group who attended the ITU World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) in Dubai including Ambassador Phil Verveer, US State Department, and representatives of the civil society; business, and technical communities, and was open to the public - either in person or via phone bridge. This event focused on implications for Internet Governance (IG) and how to advance the effectiveness of the IGF and the IGF-USA in addressing key issues highlighted during the WCIT, but which are clearly in the IG space.


* What are the key implications from WCIT for Internet Governance, and the IGF?
* Roadmap of upcoming events of relevance that will revisit IG issues
* Will the Improvements to the IGF just agreed by the UN GA suffice?
* What is needed to strengthen the IGF to address key issues?
