Internet governance can be understood as the set of procedures and rules –formal and informal– to manage the critical resources of the network and promote its development. As such, it comprises a complex set of topics that involve technical, economic, legal and socio-cultural aspects.

One of the most important spaces related to these issues is the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), which is held annually at various venues internationally. The ninth edition of the IGF will take place between 2 and 5 September this year, in Istanbul, Turkey.

For a couple of Turkish specialists, Yaman Akdeniz and Kerem Altiparmak, it is ironic that this country is the seat of a forum that seeks to spark the discussion around an Internet as open as possible. Especially as a result of the numerous blocks to various Internet-based services, as happened with YouTube and Twitter, based on some extreme legal provisions.
