DEBATE - CRITICAL TOPIC & QUESTION: 
 

Is Transparent, Democratic, Representative & Legitimate Governance of the Internet Achievable in New MiLE?  If Yes, How? What can  Africa Contribute?

This new  Multilingual Internet and Landscape Ecosystem (MiLE) has created too many new challenges to an Internet Governance model already challenged to deliver for the old Internet let alone the new Ecosystem Born in 2014. The NSA surveillance at global level revealed by the Snowden revelations caused serious damage to Trust in many existing approaches on Internet Governance. Can this be repaired? How?

Reviews of the challenges and effectiveness to date of the many processes around including the UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF), NETMundial, IANA Transition, and others and their ability to deliver in the new Ecosystem.

Attend to weigh in on the live debates on what needs to happen and be addressed head on to make internet Governance a global Democratic process for humanity which factors in the will of the people everywhere who will be governed by it and help shape a new model of the internet governance in the new Ecosystem to positively impact all stakeholders at local and global levels.
