For the third year in a row, members of the different stakeholder groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH) which are active in their own fields of expertise, will meet to continue and deepen the conversation on global issues and themes from a national perspective and to identify, initiated collaboration on common priorities.

This year we are happy to say that the organizational committee will be enriched by the participation of UTIC, the BH Registry for the .ba domain and the organization Save the Children which will contribute to shape the two main panels of this year edition. Motivated and encouraged by the success, engagement and participation of the previous two editions of BHIGF 2015 and 2016 and by the participation at the two editions of more than 250 individuals; the 2017 edition will address two strategic and emergent issues that we enrich and call upon the interest of the emerging Internet Governance Community in BH. The event will take place on December 12th 2017, in Sarajevo.

This year overreaching theme will focus on two critical aspects of Internet Governance, one is infrastructure, using as starting point the role played by IXP and at the other end a conversation on the people, focusing on a specific group of users: children their use of internet in BH, local and global questions.

The title of this year forum will be: The network effect: from infrastructure to children
