  • How can we involve citizens in the development of a common set of principles and guidelines for the Internet, and its governance?
  • How can new governance innovations address the challenge of women’s safety in India?
  • How can we design a future system for distributed and collaborative global governance?
  • How can more small data in the hands of citizens help improve policymaking?
  • How can we best prepare the next generation to have a real impact in their communities?
  • How can social labs act as drivers of change in governance?
  • How can institutions navigate political concerns while seeking to accelerate innovation?
