DENIC offers a comprehensive topical overview of ongoing international Internet governance activities on a separate DENIC website: the Internet Governance Radar.

Internet Governance

Internet Governance (IG) is the development and application of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programs that shape the evolution and use of the Internet. Governments, the private sector and civil society work together, in their respective roles, to find appropriate solutions. IG is based on the multistakeholder model, a governance structure that aims to bring together a wide range of stakeholders to participate in dialogue, decision-making and the implementation of solutions to common issues – fully in line with the motto "ALL for ONE Internet".

Information in German

IG-Radar is the first website to provide extensive information on Internet governance in German and English. It gives an overview of the global players and the dialogues they conduct on digital governance issues, provides topical conference reports in blog format as well as references to Internet governance events.

The web offer wants to draw attention to this year's Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in the German capital of Berlin and provide guidance. The IGF is an open platform of the United Nations to discuss central legal, political, societal and technical issues of the Internet. Representatives of governments, the civil society, the private sector, academia, international organisations and the technical community will meet at the Fourteenth Annual Meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Berlin from 25 to 29 November to deal with these issues. It is one of the essential tasks of the DENIC Cooperative to actively contribute to shaping the development of the Internet in the interest of the DENIC members and Internet users and to provide information about ongoing developments. In line with this mission, the IG Radar web offer wants to raise interest in the topic of Internet governance and motivate the wider public to get involved.
