The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is inviting nominations from all ‎stakeholder and regional groups for the 2022 IGF Multi-stakeholder Advisory Group (MAG)

 and the MAG Chair in line with the ‎established ‎principles and practices of MAG rotation and selection of its members.

Established by the ‎United Nations Secretary-General in 2006, the IGF MAG is ‎instrumental in planning the programme of the annual ‎IGF.‎  The MAG terms ‎of reference, including individual member responsibilities, group procedure, and the composition ‎of the MAG are available ‎at the IGF website.‎

IGF encourages governments, the ‎private sector, civil society, and technical communities to submit names of ‎candidates ‎from developed and developing countries as well as from countries with economies in ‎transition. Successful ‎nominees will become part of the MAG for a period of one year and are ‎expected to bring the perspectives of their respective groups to the multistakeholder consultation ‎process.‎

Nominations should be submitted using the online submission template ‎available at the IGF website to the IGF Secretariat latest September 10, ‎‎2021. Nominations for the MAG Chair should be sent directly ‎to the IGF Secretariat through the email address: nominations [at] intgovforum [dot] org.

The IGF expresses its gratitude to all past and present members of the MAG and the MAG ‎Chair, who have ‎contributed their time, effort, and valuable guidance to ensure the smooth and ‎effective running of the IGF.‎
