Internet Governance Project

The Internet Governance Project (IGP) is a leading source of independent analysis of global Internet governance. Established in 2004, the IGP is a premier hub for independent analysis in global Internet governance. Nestled within the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology, IGP comprises professors, postdoctoral researchers, and students.

Their activities span scholarly research, policy analyses, and active engagement in crucial Internet governance platforms, including the United Nations, U.S. government agencies, the European Commission, ICANN, and Regional Internet Address Registries (RIRs). With a keen focus on cybersecurity, trade policy, and safeguarding individual rights to freedom of expression and privacy, IGP advocates for a distributed and accountable system of Internet governance rooted in nonstate actors and open technical standards.

IGP's impact resonates through policy debates and institutional evolution within Internet governance. Our research and analyses serve as linchpins in policy-making forums, academic journals, and court opinions. Notably, IGP played a pivotal role in advocating for the IANA transition, marking the end of the U.S. government's oversight of ICANN, and spearheading reforms to enhance ICANN's accountability.
