According to the recent news, India, Brazil and South Africa has joined hands to investigate ways and means of establishing a new global outfit within the UN framework that would oversee global online governance. This move was announced by the countries’ officials during a seminar in Rio de Janeiro
This turn of events evoked a mixed response from the world web community, which resulted in a joint declaration that was issued a couple days ago. According to the participants of the agreement, they felt that a body was urgently required for the system of the United Nations. The new outfit is expected to coordinate and develop worldwide public policies pertaining to the web. In addition, the body would also have to ensure that online governance was transparent, democratic, and competitive.
The participants claimed that web-related policies today are created either by the largest global digital companies or directly by the relative bodies of the rich nations, such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. For example, India pointed out that the Rio recommendation was no more than a starting point for discussions, which has yet to be fleshed out by the IBSA. This online dialogue is supposed to help the United Nations’ Secretary-General carry out the mandate set by the World Summit on Information Society. At the same time, the official representatives of the country made it clear that the existing web governance processes and mechanisms have to be changed and made more inclusive and more sensitive to the demands of developing nations.
Some of the industry experts consider this proposal undermining the multi-stakeholder model which is currently in place for governing the web. One of the arguments made by the critics was that there was actually no need for a new global outfit, because there are such bodies as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, that are able to regulate the functioning of the global web address system and respond to the concerns of developing nations.
The industry participants admit that in most cases governments that pay lip service to the multi-stakeholder systems will be the ones to take the real decisions. At the same time, the private sector and civil society would be given only a minor voice, but the suggestion made by India, Brazil and South Africa might only worsen the situation.

|As far as I am concerned the UN could not tell their butt from a hole in the ground even if you gave them written directions and pictures.|
UN is a do nothing and money pit that should be gotten rid of.
It was created at the end of World War 2 as an international Organization that had the so called power to prevent wars from ever occurring; yet we see it didn't.
When bad things are happening in the world there are a number of nations that I can could count on one hand that has the balls to do something, and when they get bloodied stick around to finish the job; yet the UN just whines and cries - NO you shouldn't do that and only run around in their gay baby blue helmets..
All the UN is is a bunch of political piss ants that suck up money and the biggest nation that pays the most is the USA. I would say the USA stop paying the billions; spend that money on its own citizens and tell the UN go to Europe like they threatened to do and be the EU; not likely to happen in the near future.

|Wait for it peeps,anyone who owns a computer in the future will have to pay a web tax to use the internet...|
|This should be scary news for file-sharing sites. If a truly global governance occurs domain names could be stripped from the internet no matter where they are hosted. Nowhere will be safe anymore.|
|To the useless trolls and flamers who have nothing to contribute? FU...|
If nobody wants to sneak in the USA? Then why have about 15 million done so?
As for the USA as war mongers? Nope Fugazi.. Where is your facts?
Majority of wars have bee caused by religion than any other reason..
In fact the nation that caused the most death due to war is Germany; in the millions and Japan also; IN THE MLLIONS.
Don't even get me started on China or the Soviet Union.
Many of you just bash USA because your whiners and losers and take for granted that the people who died even European nations Britain, And other western allies; so you have the right to whine and bitch.
I have been to countries where you even complain about the leadership your either imprisoned or shot.
|united nations is a fail|
|The one with the biggest mouth is always the one with the worst command of the English language. I think there may be a correlation.|
