Issues


InternetNZ works across a range of public and technical policy issues.

The Internet Issues programme splits out InternetNZ's work on Internet Issues into five portfolios, Internet Law and Rights, Internet Use, Internet Connectivity, Internet Governance and Internet Technology.

    These projects are "cross portfolio" in their nature, and are pursued at a programme level rather than being allocated into one of the individual portfolios.   

    The Internet Connectivity Portfolio of the Issues Programme encompasses our activity to deliver the ability to connect to the Internet wherever you are in New Zealand.

    The Internet Law & Rights Portfolio of the Issues Programme encompasses InternetNZ's work to inform and enhance the legal and political environments that enable or constrain use of the Internet both domestically and internationally, and to ensure that rights and responsibilities recognised in general law are recoginised and respected in the online environment.

    The Internet Technology Portfolio concerns InternetNZ's sharing of best practice about, and development of, protocols and technologies that allow the Internet to function and to develop, while also continually pushing for enhancement of these functions.

    The Internet Use Portfolio of the Issues Programme encompasses InternetNZ's activity to encourage and drive uptake and usage of the Internet in New Zealand homes, businesses and communities.

    The Internet Governance Portfolio of the Issues Programme encompasses InternetNZ's participation in processes that make decisions regarding the future development of the Internet, both global and local.
