Briefing on future of IGF at United Nations NYC 3/30

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) has sent out an invite to a briefing on the Internet Government Forum (IGF) on March 30. In 2009 the General Assembly called on DESA to gather reports from various Internet -related organizations (including ISOC) and to consider the results, and also the future of the IGF. It is presumed at this meeting Sha Zukang, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, will report the conclusions, or at least give a status update. The invite notes that it is open to “not only to accredited entities to the World Summit on the Information Society, but also to “institutions and persons with demonstrated knowledge and experience in issues related to the Internet Governance Forum”
