This publication contains the materials and conclusions of a recent ITU workshop on the topic of Internet Governance, including background papers, workshop presentations and outputs. The workshop's objective was to contribute to the ITU process that will prepare its inputs and position vis-à-vis the United Nations working group to be established on Internet governance, resulting from the Declaration of Principles and Plan of Action adopted on 12 December 2003 at the first phase of the World Summit on the Information Society.



Governments and country-code top-level domains: A global survey

In April 2003, Professor Michael Geist and the Telecommunications Standardization Bureau of the International Telecommunications Union launched a survey of all 189 ITU member states on the role of national governments within their domestic top-level domain. The survey featured questions on the current legal role of ccTLD administrators, ccTLD policies, and governmental involvement in national and international Internet governance issues. A preliminary version summarizing the survey’s key findings was released in November 2003. This updated version now covers results from 66 countries that responded to the survey as of February 2004, representing every global region as well as a broad cross-section of developed and developing countries.
