Bright Internet Project Consortium

There are a few international organizations that play the role of global Internet governance, such as the UN Group of Governmental Experts (GGE), Internet Governance Forum (IGF), UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), and Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), as well as academic organizations, such as AIS, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). However, their activities are not effectively coordinated with each other toward global governance in terms of a safe next generation of the Internet. That is why forums such as the Bright Internet Global Summit (BIGS) and Bright Internet Global Organization (BIGO) are needed; they give multistakeholders the opportunity to collaborate on technical, policy, and global issues, and seek agreement on a common vision and principles. When the BIGO reaches consensus among member countries, BIGO will be able to cooperate with authorized governments and international organizations, such as the United Nations.

More details will be forthcoming.
