Session teaser

How can we collaboratively envision the multi-stakeholder approach moving forward?

Session description

During this panel discussion, we take a look at the origins of the multi-stakeholder model, its evolution, and where the model is heading. We consider the legitimacy of the multi-stakeholder model, and to what extent the multi-stakeholder model has perhaps become obsolete under the increased role of national actors in digital regulation.

To what extent can the multi-stakeholder body adapt to new societal challenges? Will the model be able to adapt to the fast-paced digital transformation without losing legitimacy?

We consider the role of various Internet Governance players and their multi-stakeholder processes to better understand what are the obstacles currently hindering the model and what are the possibilities for renewal.

In particular the session will take a closer look at the democratization opportunities available for these multistakeholder bodies. By uncovering why and what barriers exist to participation, we can make participation in multi-stakeholder bodies more inclusive moving forward.


Panel discussion in the auditorium, with 3-4 speakers and plenty of time for Q&A
