ICC/BASIS members believe that the second IGF successfully built upon the IGF in Athens 2006 and provided an open and informative forum for discussion on Internet governance (IG) issues among all stakeholders. This feedback provides reactions to, and experiences of ICC/BASIS members at, the second IGF, and proposes innovations to improve the IGF format and to ensure that it continues to evolve as a productive space for discussion on these issues.
