The national IGF initiative IGF MKD should contribute in the raising awareness and promotion of the multistakeholder approach as a new form of participatory democracy, fostering a dialogue between all stakeholders. This multistakeholder approach should influence the nature of Internet governance in Macedonia and create cooperative models of regulation.

IGF MKD is aimed at addressing issues such as free access, infrastructure, quality of services, local content and local apps, cyber security, online safety, policy and regulatory environment and community engagement. It is bringing diverse stakeholders under a single platform to discuss challenges and propose solutions.
