Internet Governance


The Public Foundation CIIP promotes an open, transparent and inclusive approach to Internet governance issues, including freedom of expression, respect for privacy, universal access and technical compatibility.

We conduct advocacy campaigns to ensure that state bodies, the private sector, civil society, within their authority, apply generally accepted international principles, norms, rules and procedures governing the development and use of the Internet.

The issue of Internet governance is a key and main focus of the organization. The CIIP recognizes the potential of the Internet in promoting sustainable human development and creating inclusive knowledge societies, as well as in ensuring the free flow of information and ideas throughout the world.
