IGP seeks to inform and shape Internet public policy choices by providing independent analysis and timely recommendations in ways that facilitate global participation in the Internet and promote individual rights. It is an alliance of academics that puts expertise into practical action in the fields of global governance, Internet policy, and information and communication technology.
The goal of the Internet Governance Project (IGP) is to:
- Inform and shape Internet public policy choices by providing independent analysis and timely recommendations.
- Identify and analyze new possibilities for improving global governance institutions
- Develop policy positions guided by the values of globalism, democratic governance and individual rights.
Its work contributes to policy discussions and related debates at the global, international, regional and national levels. The IGP is active in international institutions like the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Regional Internet Registies (RIRs) like ARIN and RIPE, the UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF), and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD-ICCP).
In 2008, the Project was awarded a follow-on grant from the Ford Foundation's Civil Society and Governance, and Media units.
