The new Internet constituency and a multistakeholder approach
I am all for a multistakeholder approach with regard to Internet Governance, as I think it is vital for the way forward. We are getting to the stage of cross-national constituencies, such as gender, indigenous peoples, etc. Internet users' interests cross national borders, so the old model of Governments alone cannot be maintained, as even the democratic governments cannot justify that they are elected and have the mandate from the people.
