About IGF Bali
The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is a multi-stakeholder dialogue on the issues and policies of Internet governance. The forums bring together stakeholders in the Internet governance debate, including government representatives, the private sector, civil society organizations, and the technical and academic communities, on an equal basis and through an open and inclusive process. The establishment of the IGF was formally announced by the United Nations Secretary-General in July 2006. The IGF was first convened in October–November 2006 and has been held annually since then.
The eighth annual Meeting of the IGF will be hosted by the Government of Indonesia in Bali from 22 to 25 October 2013. The overall theme of the IGF 2013 is “Building Bridges – Enhancing Multi-Stakeholder Cooperation for Growth and Sustainable Development.” The sub-themes for the eighth IGF are as follows:

• Openness – Human rights, freedom of expression and free flow of information on the Internet
• Security – Legal and other frameworks: spam, hacking and cyber-crime
• Enhanced cooperation
