The ninth Internet Governance Forum (IGF) took place in 2014 in Istanbul. More than 2,000 onsite participants from all continents representing governments, intergovernmental organizations, private sector, civil society and the technical community participated. The forum played a key role in facilitating policy debates and identifying emerging issues for discussion on topics such as Net Neutrality; the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) stewardship transition and pressing questions about Human Rights online, among many others. This report contains conclusions and outcomes of more than 100 expert-led discussions, debates and edited transcripts of all the main sessions.



Message from Under-Secretary-General Mr. Wu Hongbo

With the theme of “Connecting Continents for Enhanced Multistakeholder Internet Governance”, the ninth Internet Governance Forum (IGF) (2-5 September 2014, Istanbul, Turkey) reflected the continuous value of the IGF. Held in a year marked by growing global attention to Internet governance, the ninth IGF demonstrated again that it provides a unique space that creates synergies among policy debates at the global level, as well as an important platform for exchange of experience and best practice.
