Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) is one of the key regional initiatives on Internet governance. By adopting the multi-stakeholder approach as its core principle, APrIGF serves as a platform for discussion, exchange and collaboration at a regional level, and also where possible to aggregate national IGF discussions, ultimately advance the Internet governance development in the Asia Pacific region.
The APrIGF community has grown significantly since its initiation in 2010. We are now bringing together over 300 multi-stakeholders from over 20 countries across the region each year to participate in advancing the Internet governance development. The annual conference program consists of three sessions: the “the pre-event” meeting, the “core conference,” and the “Youth IGF Camp.”
2016 APrIGF will be held at NTUH International Convention Center in Taipei from July 27 to 29. With the advent of a new Internet era of hybrid spaces, 2016 APrIGF will definitely be the good platform for all these important discussions.
