The IGF Secretariat and the Multi-stakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) are the main institutional bodies of the IGF.
The MAG is comprised of 56 members from all stakeholder groups. Its purpose is to assist the Secretary General in convening the IGF. The MAG holds meetings 3 times a year at the Palais des Nations in Geneva and is preceded by open consultations and meetings. Localized discussions of Internet policy occur at regional and national IGF events, which are held all year worldwide.
While the IGF does not adopt resolutions or create any binding treaties, its importance lies in its ability to facilitate discourse between international organizations dealing with international public policies and the future of the Internet. IGF gatherings discuss proposed regulatory frameworks, potential risks, global trends, best and worst practices that been adopted or are currently under discussion around the world. Participants examine the impact of treaties and recommendations adopted in other international venues.
