Internet Governance Activities

The NRO has strong links to many key sectors in the Internet community, including network operators, standards bodies, international forums and governments.

Since the early days of the Internet, the NRO and RIRs have been active in cooperating with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure the growth, stability and security of the Internet. The NRO is committed to continuing this cooperation, and engages with a wide range of governments and global institutions with an interest in the development of the Internet.
