The Arab World Internet Institute ( AWII ) joined the Internet Governance Forum Supporting Association ( IGFSA ) in the objective of helping strengthen the IGF as a unique platform to exchange perspectives and concerns on key issues that may affect the future of the Internet. The institute joined other organizations and corporations such as ICANN, Internet Society, Verizon, Amazon, … and other individual members who care deeply about relationships and the sharing of ideas and experiences about what has worked when it comes to key policy or technical issues relating to the Internet.
The IGF is one of the most successful outcomes of the United Nations World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) and brings together governments, civil society, the private sector and the technical community from around the globe to an informal setting, free from binding negotiations.
The Internet Governance Forum Support Association (IGFSA) is set up to support the United Nations Internet Governance Forum (IGF). The goal of the IGFSA is to provide stable and sustainable support for the IGF Secretariat and to fund related activities.
