Comments on IGF Istanbul and the future of the Internet Governance Forum

On Monday 27th October, CDT submitted comments in response to the Internet Governance Forum‘s call for input on its recent meeting in Istanbul.

Overall, we believe that IGF Istanbul was a success and that the IGF continues to grow in importance. While some may disparage the IGF as just a “talk shop,” there is no other environment that allows for fruitful Internet policy discussions without the burdens of negotiated outcomes and political grandstanding.
