A series of scholarly debates on the role of intergovernmental organizations in Internet governance and on the promises and limitations of multi-stakeholderism. In line with GigaNet's objective to promote an informed dialogue between researchers and policy makers, the Geneva workshop seeks to provide scholarly perspectives on current debates. The workshop builds on the proximity to ITU's World Technology Policy Forum and the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) consultations for the 2013 Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and aims to bring together emerging as well as established scholars, and professionals (drawing from governments, international organizations, the private sector, civil society, and funders), in order to establish synergies between a vivid academic field and global Internet policy-making.
