Supporting policies to ensure a safe, secure, open, interoperable and global Internet

The Internet Governance Coalition is an industry-led coalition with broad representation from across the Internet ecosystem, that advocates for policies that ensure a safe, secure, open, interoperable, and global Internet as the underlying foundation for sustainable economic and social development.

The Internet Governance Coalition believes that a thriving Internet depends on a governance structure that is open, transparent, and representative of all stakeholders.

The current multistakeholder model for Internet governance facilitated the historic Internet-driven economic, social, and political development of the past two decades.

The decentralized structure of the Internet enabled individuals to access information and services, to connect and to communicate, and to share ideas and knowledge globally.

By offering new possibilities for entrepreneurial creativity, the Internet became a powerful engine for unparalleled technological innovation, economic growth and the preservation and promotion of cultural diversity.
