The Global Internet Policy Initiative is a network of non-profit, non-governmental organization's supporting adoption in developing and transitional countries of the legal and policy framework for an open and democratic Internet. GIPI is a network of networks. Its members work with local stakeholders in consultative, coalition-based efforts to promote the principles of a decentralized, accessible, user-controlled, and market-driven Internet.

This web site collects Internet policy materials of particular interest to developing and transitional countries. International models and other resources are catalogued under the issue areas listed on the left of this page. Memos especially prepared by GIPI are collected under Best Practices.

In addition, GIPI members are creating country-specific and local language web sites posting national laws, draft laws, analytic materials, and news.
