One Internet, the final report and recommendations of the Global Commission on Internet Governance, was released at the OECD ministerial meeting on the digital economy in Cancún, Mexico, in June.

If we want a future where the internet continues to provide opportunities for economic growth, free expression, political equality and social justice then governments, civil society and the private sector must actively choose that future and then take the necessary steps to achieve it.”
