About Japan IGF

Introduction:

Japan IGF was recently formed in order to introduce various IGF related activities in Japan to global IGF community. Currently, there are two independent activities related to Internet governance that fall under this platform: IGF-Japan and Internet Governance Conference Japan (IGCJ). Both IGF-Japan and IGCJ seek to provide a place for discussions in Japan on Internet Governance and operate under open, transparent, inclusive and non-commercial principles.

IGF-Japan: Annual Meetings

IGF-Japan started its activities in 2010 and focused on hosting annual meetings, just like many other National Regional IGFs. The annual meetings cover comprehensive topics on Internet Governance and highlight various IG issues which are relevant to the Japanese community. The third APrIGF was hosted in 2012.

IGCJ: Continuous discussions platform

This is a platform with theme-based, bi-monthly meetings. They hold an open call for agenda topics and maintain a mailing list where anyone is able to participate and discuss topics relevant to Internet Governance. IGCJ accomodates the Japanese community, by offering the regular opportunity for discussions on issues relevant to Internet Governance.
