Role of IXP in Internet governance

Session subject

Internet Exchange Points are part of the core infrastructure of the Internet as well as a relevant stakeholder in Internet Governance.

Session description

The Internet has become increasingly the key infrastructure and platform for social, political and economic activities. This implies strong dependency on the basic infrastructure and on the services and applications that use the Internet. Internet Exchange Points are part of the core infrastructure of the Internet as well as a relevant stakeholder in Internet Governance.

The Workshops intends to identify the core infrastructure of the Internet, the relevant stakeholders based on the division of roles and responsibilities and the mutual dependencies. Subsequently we will assess and evaluate the role of IXPs in Internet Governance. Consequently a major focus will be put on how IXPs make a contribution to safeguard and ensure an open, divers, secure, and effective infrastructure that maintains and enhances the capability of the Internet as a key driver for innovation and economic growth.

Explanatory note: Considering the topic and focus of the Workshop a multi-stakeholder-approach will be extremely difficult but we will try. At least the Workshop will cover the aspects and incorporate a multitude of stakeholders.
