The application period for Fellowship Program 2019 will be open from 22 Dec 2018 to 30 Jan 2019, 24:00 UTC.
The MSG would like to invite the Asia Pacific community to contribute your thoughts and topics of interests in shaping the overarching theme and respective sub-themes for the upcoming 2019 meeting.
The Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum 2018 Port Vila Synthesis Document is now published.
Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (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 Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group (MSG) of APrIGF is a self-organised committee with members from around the AP Internet Community formed with shared objectives.
APrIGF has been held in different countries and regions. Previous hosting cities include Hong Kong in 2010, followed by Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, Delhi, Macao and most recently Taipei in 2016.
