U.N. Meeting to Focus on Future of Internet

Government officials from more than 190 counties will meet in New York for a two-day discussion (the United Nations’ 10 Year Review of the World Summit on the Information Society, or WSIS+10 Review) that could, in principle, have a huge influence on how the Internet is governed for the next decade. “There is still an ongoing debate over this question of whether the internet and the policy environment for the Internet should be multilateral or multistakeholder. That continues to be the sticking point for many countries,” the Internet Society‘s VP of Global Policy Sally Wentworth says.
