The membership of the Multistakeholder Advisory Group of the Internet
Governance Forum has been renewed.


A total of 55 members, 25 among them new, have been appointed.  The Advisory
Group members are from all stakeholder groups and all regions, representing
Governments, civil society, the private sector and technical community.


All Advisory Group members serve in their personal capacity, but are
expected to have extensive linkages with their respective stakeholder
groups.  The main task of the Advisory Group is to provide advice on the
preparations for the tenth meeting of the Internet Governance Forum, which
is scheduled to take place in João Pessoa, Brazil, on 10-13 November 2015.


Representatives of previous host countries and representatives of relevant
international and regional intergovernmental organizations are also invited
to attend Advisory Group meetings.


The Internet Governance Forum is an outcome of the Tunis phase of the World
Summit on the Information Society that took place in 2005.  In the Tunis
Agenda for the Information Society, Governments asked the Secretary-General
to convene a “new forum for policy dialogue” to discuss issues related to
key elements of Internet governance and set out the Forum’s mandate.


The Forum’s past nine meetings took place in Athens, Greece, in November
2006; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in November 2007; Hyderabad, India, in
December 2008; Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, in November 2009; Vilnius, Lithuania,
in November 2010; Nairobi, Kenya in September 2011; Baku, Azerbaijan in
November 2012; Bali, Indonesia in October 2013; and Istanbul, Turkey in
September 2014.
