The Ninth Annual IGF Meeting was held in Istanbul, Turkey on 2-5 September 2014. Pre-events were held on 1 September. The overarching theme for the IGF 2014 Annual meeting was Connecting Continents for Enhanced Multistakeholder Internet Governance. The Chair’s Summary gives the traditional summary of the proceedings, but individual reports and commentary give more detail and analysis.
It should be noted that the Internet Ungovernance Forum took place at the same time in Istanbul, and those following IG issues might want to review that process as well.
