KIGA


Who are we?
KIGA, the Korean Internet Governance Alliance, is an alliance of private and public sectors that brings together more stakeholders to engage in Internet conversations. We are a platform that is premised on the observation that the ripple effect of the Internet is expanding into political, economic, social and future forms of life.
  We are open to civil society, the Internet industry, developers and engineers, academia, civil servants and members of public organizations who are interested in problems and challenges facing Internet governance. With this perspective, KIGA holds various Kr-IGF (http://www.krigf.kr/) every year to provide opportunities to many stakeholders to ask, give opinions, or make suggestions on Internet-related public policy
issues.


Our mission
Our approach is a non-profit alliance in which multi-level stakeholders are represented through organizational structure. We support a consensus-based, multi-level stakeholder approach to transparent and accountable Internet governance. Thus, we maintain a consensus-based decision-making process in which the various views of stakeholders are being discussed or deliberated.
  The mission of KIGA differs from the Internet Address Policy Deliberation Counsel (IAPDC), established by the Ministry of Science and ICT under the Internet Address Resources Act. The IAPDC is a government-controlled body in managing internet address resources, which is part of our efforts to find alternative models.
We present a multi-level stakeholder management model for Internet resources in Korea through the IANA stewardship transition from the United States to ANANN as of September 2016. We support a multi-level stakeholder model and the openness of the
internet.

What we do
We share ongoing discussions on Internet governance at the national and international level, review today's most urgent issues, and cooperate with international and local activities.
  By organizing domestic events and attending international conferences, we established a global network. In this way, we continue to work with international partners, including ICANN, APNIC, JPNIC and the UN Internet Governance Forum, to address new challenges.
  This website hosts a series of KIGA General and Division meetings on a two-month and monthly basis, respectively. We encourage and welcome your participation in the near future.
