ISOC-DC held its annual debrief on the UN’s Internet Governance Forum (IGF). In addition to discussing IGF2017, which was held from December 18 to December 21 in Geneva, participants will discuss their observations from the Global Conference on Cyber Space (GCCS) held in November in New Delhi, India, as well as the 4th annual World Internet Conference held in Wuzhen, China, in December. These three conferences examined the forces and decisions that are shaping the Internet but from three very different perspectives. This was an audience participation event with opportunities to share observations, questions, and opinions.
