The significant role and impact the Internet has on social, educational, cultural, legal, economic, and political aspects of society around the world is evident in the development of the Balkan countries in particular as well. Participation records show a significant lack of community’s participation in global Internet governance policy spaces. Disproportion representation between Balkan and other European countries is also evident, as the attendance statistics of the past 11 years of the global Internet Governance Forum (IGF) demonstrate, for instance. This leads to consequences such as the lack of substantive participation in bottom-up IG processes and disengagement in building the program of major IG events (e.g. no or very few workshop proposal submissions, very low number of participants in situ or online, lack of good practice examples from the region, little sharing of challenges in the region, etc.).
