A plethora of international organizations and governments have developed numerous sets of Internet Governance fundamentals, typically suggesting a round figure of ten of them. Whilst their wording they use can appear similar, in reality, the same terminology oftentimes bear contrasting senses and connotations. Whether they could indeed find a “universal formula” to balance those different principles and exercise a proper governance of the Web and whether such a fomula could stand a reality check will become the central issue of the panel.
