About

 

The Pan-European dialogue on Internet governance (EuroDIG) is an open platform for informal and inclusive discussions on public policy issues related to Internet Governance (IG). 

Exchanging views and best practices

The European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) is an open multi-stakeholder platform to exchange views about the Internet and how it is governed. Created in 2008 by several organisations, government representatives and experts, it fosters dialogue and collaboration with the Internet community on public policy for the Internet. Culminating in an annual conference that takes place in a different European city. EuroDIG ‘Messages’ are prepared and presented to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

EuroDIG is supported by a group of institutional partners (in alphabetical order):

Goals

The main aim of EuroDIG is to promote the engagement of Europeans in multistakeholder dialogue in order to share their expertise and best practice and, where possible, identify common ground. This enables EuroDIG to pull together national perspectives and to apply and shape European values and views regarding the Internet. It is the place to start and to facilitate a discussion not to finalise it and therefore a decision shaping not a decision making initiative.

EuroDIG organisational structure

This chart shows the organisational structure of the EuroDIG Support Association and the planning of the annual EuroDIG event. Association matters (including administrative oversight of the EuroDIG events and budgetary matters) and the substantive EuroDIG event planning process (focused on content and meeting format) are separate processes that come together in the EuroDIG events.

The Secretariat is the connecting element serving both of these processes. The Secretariat is also able to follow up on recommendations from Institutional Partners and the community concerning the development of the EuroDIG event.
