The Indian Government has thrown its support behind a new multistakeholder model of Internet governance at this week’s meeting of the not-for-profit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Announcing the Indian Government’s support, the Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad, said the Internet must remain plural and must be managed by a multistakeholder system.

“Not only do we support multistakeholderism, but also we encourage multistakeholderism itself to embrace all geographies and all societies. We will partner with you all to make this a reality. We must work toward this new form of digital democracy,” the Minister said.

In March last year, the United States Government announced its intent to transition its stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community, and ICANN President and CEO Fadi Chehadé, said the decision that was made by India was significant.

“Today, with India joining this group of countries that openly support the multistakeholder model of Internet governance, we increase our ranks significantly.

“Minister Prasad’s statement of support marks not only an important milestone for the transition, but also speaks to the continued success of the multistakeholder model,” Chehadé said.

At this week’s conference, ICANN also announced the winners of the 2015 Multistakeholder Ethos award are community leader Cheryl Langdon Orr and Africa Internet pioneer Nii Quaynor. The award is given to members of the global Internet community who have demonstrated “extraordinary commitment” to the multistakeholder model.

More than 1,400 members of the global Internet community are attending the conference to discuss and debate the future of ICANN and Internet governance.
