Coming off what was already an exceptionally dynamic period for Internet governance, the events of early 2022 have added further complexity and momentum to global Internet governance discussions. Geopolitical shifts, new and far-reaching national legislative developments, and rapidly evolving governance structures all have potential implications for Internet users and operators. Chris Buckridge, an advisor on global strategic engagement for the RIPE NCC and member of the Internet Governance Forum’s Multistakeholder Advisory Group, will provide an overview of the most significant discussions currently underway, and consider what impacts we might anticipate on Internet governance and operations globally.
