The initiators suggest to support the following initiative:
i2: Working definition of Multistakeholderism (m17m)

Proposal

Internet governance should be built on democratic, multistakeholder processes, ensuring the meaningful and accountable participation of all stakeholders, including governments, the private sector, civil society, the technical community, the academic community and users. The respective roles and responsibilities of stakeholders should be interpreted in a flexible manner with reference to the issue under discussion.

Reasons

Argument 1

This is the text that was agreed at NETmundial and has already gone through a rough consensus process.
