Best Bits is a civil society network on Internet governance and Internet rights. It offers an open space where each group can present and advocate for the initiatives that they believe offer the best positive agenda for advancing broadly shared civil society interests in Internet governance. Through knowledge sharing, it provides the opportunity for broader engagement in and better coordination of these initiatives. This will lead to more informed, effective, inclusive and complementary advocacy outcomes. Read more…
Best Bits brings together a diverse group of activists and experts from global North and South who are working on Internet policy advocacy from different perspectives, who broaden both their input and their outreach through participation in the Best Bits network and events. Rather than detracting from the diversity of their approaches, the network seeks to share and build upon the “best bits” of each of them. You can join us by attending any of our events or joining our mailing list.
We hold at least one major gathering of our own each year, alongside another significant Internet governance event. Participants also attend other meetings throughout the year, and use this website as a resource to coordinate between themselves. Our calendar draws from various sources to collect together all the upcoming Internet governance events that we know of, and allows participants to notify others that they will be there, to read or contribute background information, and to report on the meeting once it is over. Try it!
Best Bits was a global civil society network on the topic of Internet governance, that was formed in 2012 and closed in 2019. Many of the former members of Best Bits participate in the Internet Governance Caucus.
