The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) has taken constructive steps to integrate gender equality into its space, processes and issues. This years’ Gender Roundtable and other specific spaces such as the Gender Dynamic Coalition, aimed to strengthen the previous premise by bringing in different stakeholders (including governments, UN agencies, the private sector, civil society etc.) to dialogue on key issues, challenges and best practices on the extent to which gender has been integrated into internet governance issues. This helped to increase knowledge and understanding of gender and internet specific concerns within the internet governance framework and debates.
