Internet governance is the development and application by governments, the private sector and civil society, in their respective roles, of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programmes that shape the evolution and use of the Internet.

(Working Group on Internet Governance (WGIG), 2005)

Internet governance is based on the multistakeholder model, a governance structure that aims to bring together a wide range of stakeholders to participate in dialogue, decision-making and the implementation of solutions to common issues – ALL for ONE Internet.
