Internet Society (ISOC) – IGF 2014: Producing Tangible Outcomes on Best Practices

In response to the Request for Public Input posted on the IGF website, the Internet Society submits the following general reflections as an input into the planning of the IGF 2014 and proposes some concrete innovations for the Istanbul meeting. The core of the proposal is to enable the IGF to produce policy outcome documents open for voluntary adoption. In order to get there, it is suggested to seek inspiration from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in terms of producing outcome documents based on voluntary adoption and starting substantive intersessional work.

The proposal also suggests reviving Best Practice Forums and introducing Bird of a Feather-type sessions.
