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.



Taking Stock of IGF 2015

Following the conclusion of IGF 2014, IGF 2014 participants were requested to complete an online survey to help evaluate the overall meeting. In addition, the IGF Secretariat asked stakeholders to submit written contributions taking stock of the Istanbul meeting and looking forward to the IGF 2015 meeting (tenth IGF). Responses to these two processes were compiled into a synthesis paper that was then discussed at the IGF Open Consultations and MAG Meeting held in December 2014. Below is a summary of feedback received from the community and subsequently discussed as part of the MAG’s deliberations.
