The Practice and Craft of Multistakeholder Governance

Stefaan G. Verhulst | September 2016


In this paper, GovLab cofounder 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 Center to inform their project on multistakeholder coalitions and published by Global Partners Digital.
