"Internet Governance Multistakeholders towards Information Society through Participation“ The multi-stakeholder participation in the process of Internet governance requires a brief overview of the concept of government itself, which offers a theoretical framework for the changes that have occurred in recent decades, such as the plurality actors involved in the political process and the importance of soft power in the international scheme. Governance can be understood as the formation and operation of joint "rules of the game", which defines the actors and their responsibilities, both in collaboration towards a common goal and in resolving any disputes that arise. Governance arrangements are often translated into a partnership between state and non-state actors. "Internet Governance to Accelerate the Achievement of the Millennium Development Goals 2015“ In year 2000 Indonesia with other countries committed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), an objective measure for development and poverty alleviation. Internet, as a technology that has been proven to accelerate economic growth and fulfillment of human rights becomes a very relevant issue in the fulfillment of the MDGs. MDGs are not just for Indonesia. The issue of the MDGs is to be the benchmark for all the countries involved in the Internet Governance Forum. This issue is particularly relevant because in the near future there will be an evaluation to see the“achievement of the MDGs throughout the world.Internet Governance to Achieve Sustainable Development through Peoples Participation"The term sustainable development is about finding a balanced way that allows the inclusion of economic and socialwelfare of the environment and allow the next generation to ensure the development remains. Sustainabledevelopment is also associated with the rich and poor, north and south relations. A healthy dialogue between the threeentities; government, civil society and the private sector can certainly contribute to solving environmental problems andhuman good in developed countries. Internet Governance and the forum is a momentum to stimulate dialogue on issuesthat arise as the development of technology and the internet.
