The SS-IGF is a multi-stakeholder forum for public policy dialogue on issues of Internet Governance in South Sudan. It brings together all stakeholders in the Internet governance debate, those representing the government, the private sector, the civil society, the technical community, and the academic community, on an equal basis and through an open and inclusive process.
It is mandated to be a discussion forum for facilitating dialogue between the Forum’s participants. The SSIGF may identify existing and emerging internet-related public policy issues, bring them to the attention of the relevant authorities and the general public, and, where appropriate, make recommendations to the relevant authorities. The SS-IGF does not have any direct decision-making authority.
