This session aims at examining some of the most salient processes in the region of the last years. The region has seen an increase in awareness of Internet governance issues within all stakeholders: Netmundial and the involvement of the CGI and ICANN; the eLAC process which has consolidated a steady participation of governments; the development of improved Internet infrastructure for the region; the consolidation of the LACIGF as a forum for participation and the steady development of national Internet governance initiatives in many countries are all case in points. A key distinctive trait is that these initiatives have a multistakeholder component and that they have all some degree of cooperation from different actors.
The session doesn’t aim to provide a celebratory view on these processes, nor present them just to inform them to a global audience. Rather, the objective is to frame the issues and extract, with the expertise of two moderators (one from outside the region): What are the distinctive traits of this cooperation and how to promote it within the current institutional environment?; What is particular about the region and what could be considered as part of a growing international trend?; What is the value for other regions with this experience and what could be incorporated from others into the existing processes? Considering other regional trends, is there a need to develop new mechanisms? This proposal is presented as part of an overall effort of the Internet technical organizations comprised in the Casa de Internet of LAC.
