The South Sudan Internet Governance Forum is a multi-stakeholder forum for public policy dialogue on issues of Internet Governance in South Sudan. It brings together all stakeholders in the Internet governance debate (government, the private sector, civil society, technical community, and the academic community) on an equal basis and through an open and inclusive process.
The SS-IGF identifies existing and emerging internet-related public policy issues and bring them to the attention of the relevant authorities and the general public, and, where appropriate, make recommendations to the relevant authorities.
The SS-IGF is part of the hierarchy of Internet Governance Forums (IGF) where at an International level there is the global IGF that was established by the United Nations in July 2006. At a continental level there is the African Internet Governance Forum (AfIGF), and at a regional level, the SS-IGF falls under the East Africa Internet Governance Forum (EAIGF).
