GCIG Releases Final Report, 'One Internet'

Monika Ermert reporting in the IP Watch: "On the eve of the third internet-related Ministerial Meeting of the Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) starting tomorrow in Cancun, Mexico, the Global Commission on Internet Governance (GCIG) published a think report on 'One Internet.' Calling for a new 'social compact' for the internet, the 140-page report that was fed by 50 research studies has a number of well-known recommendations, some surprisingly technical and some interesting ones."

Kathy Brown, CEO of the Internet Society, which also partnered with the GCIG on the report, said while she saw the report and efforts during the OECD internet ministerial as "solidifying the gains that were made on consensus about the globally open connected network," security is the issue that needs to be addressed in a more collaborative way.
