The Global Commission on Internet Governance’s One Internet report makes practical recommendations for the international community to ensure that the future of the Internet remains open, secure, trustworthy and inclusive. The recommendations continue to gain traction on cybersecurity, multi-stakeholder governance and accessibility. CIGI is also conducting work on the future of the Internet in China, and international economic law and intellectual property law related to Internet commerce.
