A Bill of Rights for the Internet?
The Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance
, also known as NETmundial
, was recently convened in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to discuss two important issues relevant for the future evolution of the Internet, in an open and multistakeholder fashion:
- Internet Governance Principles, and
- Roadmap for the future evolution of the Internet Governance Ecosystem.
The recommendations in this document have been prepared with the view to guiding NETmundial to consensus. This has been a collaborative effort among
representatives of all stakeholder groups.
More than 180 contributions have been received from all stakeholders around the globe. Those contributions have been taken as the basis for the elaboration of the recommendations submitted here to the participants of NETmundial towards the development of broad consensus.
The recommendations of NETmundial are also intended to constitute a potentially valuable contribution for use in other Internet governance related fora and entities.

What do people think about these aims? What do they mean in the context of other significant developments, such as the TPP?
