Welcome to SEEDIG

SEEDIG is a sub-regional Internet Governance Forum initiative, recognised as such by the global Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

What is the purpose of SEEDIG?

SEEDIG is aimed to:
- raise awareness and promote a better understanding of Internet governance among stakeholders from South Eastern Europe and the neighbouring area;
- build or strengthen the capacity of these stakeholders to actively participate in national, regional and international Internet governance processes;
- facilitate multistakeholder discussions, exchanges and collaboration on Internet-related issues that of particular concern for stakeholders in the region;
- contribute to creating linkages between the Internet governance realities in the region and the pan-European and global Internet governance processes.

SEEDIG welcomes individuals and entities from all stakeholder groups (governments, intergovernmental organizations, civil society, academia, private sector, technical community), particularly from, but not limited to, countries in South Eastern Europe and the neighbouring area.
