The Eighth GIG-ARTS Conference: Thirty Years of Multistakeholderism in Internet Governance

The 8th GIG-ARTS Conference was recently held at The Hague campus of Leiden University on 3 and 4 June. This year’s conference centered on the theme “Thirty Years of Multistakeholderism in Internet Governance: Assessments and Prospects.” Over the past three decades, the multistakeholder model has become a cornerstone in the governance of the internet and other global issues, prompting a critical evaluation of its impact and future direction.

The conference provided a comprehensive review of the multistakeholder principle, which has been a dominant approach in internet governance since the 1990s. Key discussions revolved around the effectiveness of this model, examining the promises it has fulfilled, the persistent challenges, and the potential pathways for its evolution.

ICPC is proud to sponsor this event, underlining our commitment to advancing Internet governance research. Our members Mauro Santaniello, Nicola Palladino, Serena Fraiese and Carlos Fonseca contributed to the conference either as organising members, moderators or panellists.

During the conference our director, Mauro Santaniello, was appointed as coordinator of this international network. Additionally, it was announced that ICPC, at the University of Salerno, will be in charge of organising and hosting the next edition of GIG-ARTS!
