Adeel Sadiq, a recent alumnus of NUST SEECS, represented Pakistan on 10th Annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2015 at Joao Pessoa Brazil under the banner of United Nations Organization (UNO).
Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is a multistakeholder, democratic and transparent forum which facilitates discussions on public policy issues related to key elements of Internet governance. IGF provides enabling platform for discussions among all stakeholders in the Internet governance ecosystem, including all entities accredited by the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), as well as other institutions and individuals with proven expertise and experience in all matters related to Internet governance.
After consulting the wider Internet community and discussing the overarching theme of the 2015 IGF meeting, the Multistakeholder Advisory Group decided to retain the title “Evolution of Internet Governance: Empowering Sustainable Development”. This theme will be supported by eight sub-themes that will frame the discussions at the João Pessoa meeting:
- Cybersecurity and trust
- The Internet economy
- Inclusiveness and diversity
- Enhancing multistakeholder cooperation
- The Internet and human rights
- Critical Internet resources
- Emerging issues
