This document contains the outcomes from the two phases of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). The First Phase, held in Geneva 10-12 December 2003, resulted in the Geneva Declaration of Principles and the Geneva Plan of Action. The Tunis Phase, held 16-18 November 2005, produced the Tunis Commitment and the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society.




It is my great privilege to present the outcome documents from the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), which was held in two phases in Geneva, 10-12 December 2003 and in Tunis, 16-18 November 2005. This Summit represents a milestone, not only for the United Nations and the International Telecommunication Union, which played the leading managerial role in the Summit, but for all stakeholders involved. WSIS is a bold attempt to address the issues raised by information and communication technologies (ICTs) through a structured and inclusive approach.
