The Practice and Craft of Multistakeholder Governance

26 Sep 2016

By Stefaan G. Verhulst

In this paper, GovLab co-founder and GPD Advisory Board member Stefaan Verhulst examines a range of current and actual instances of governance in the digital environment which embody (or at least approximate) the ideal of multistakeholderism, asking what lessons can be learned— and what these examples tell us about the state of, and prospects for, internet governance.

The paper was initially commissioned by the Stanley Foundation to inform their project on multistakeholder coalitions.
