Internet Governance Forum (BHIGF) of Bosnia and Herzegovina is a national IGF initiative dedicated to open, inclusive, diverse and informal dialogue on Internet governance issues among all interested stakeholders in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH). Last year, members of different stakeholder groups in BH who are active in their own fields of expertise, met for the first time and initiated the inter-stakeholder collaboration. It was just about the time for BH to join the dialogue on IG on regional and global levels trough its own national IGF process.
On the 21st October 2016, we, One World Platform, in partnership with Communications Regulatory Agency of BH, and under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, are organizing second Internet Governance Forum of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
