Call for Nominations - IGF Leadership Panel

We would like to make you aware of the call for nominations for the inaugural Leadership Panel of the 2022 and 2023 Internet Governance Forum (IGF) cycles.

Following several rounds of open consultations, the Leadership Panel is a response to the Secretary-General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, which calls for strengthening of the IGF through, among other aspects, ’’creating a strategic and empowered multi-stakeholder high-level body, building on the experience of the existing multi-stakeholder advisory group, which would address urgent issues, coordinate follow-up action on Forum discussions and relay proposed policy approaches and recommendations from the Forum to the appropriate normative and decision-making forums.’’

Nominations can be submitted through the online form on the IGF website or on official letterhead by sending an attachment through email to

The deadline for submissions is 29 November 2021.
