The Internet Governance Forum USA (IGF-USA), found on IGFUSA.us, is a leading forum for multistakeholder dialogue on the biggest issues facing the Internet in the US. It brings together industry, government, civil society, academia, and technical experts to collectively discuss how the community can continue to support the evolution of the trusted, secure, globally interconnected Internet. 

The IGF-USA is the best opportunity in the US to participate in these discussions in an open, inclusive and transparent manner. From the development of the programming to the forum itself, the process is completely free and open to all interested participants. This provides an opportunity for businesses, organizations, and individuals with an online presence to learn more about the technical and policy environments that impact them. 

IGF-USA 2021

On July 14 and 15, the IGF-USA 2021 will host two days of in-depth discussions at a time in which the Internet plays a bigger role in our lives than ever before. 

The IGF-USA community has been convening diverse, multistakeholder dialogue since 2009. Attending this year’s event will provide a great opportunity to better understand the issues that have become increasingly prominent in the media, governmental processes, and public dialogue.

Why don’t we have better digital identity? What could we do if we did?
