The need to establish an international academic organization dedicated in providing comprehensive instruction about internet governance was realized by the academic members of United Nations Working Group of Internet Governance ([[WGIG]]), who were also contributed in providing a complete and elaborate explanation of the meaning of internet governance in 2005. On June 2006, an expert meeting was held in Rathen Germany which was prepared and coordinated by the small ad hoc working group that was created and supported by  International Association of Media and Communication Research ([[IAMCR]]), International Communication Association ([[ICA]]) and UNESCO. The result of the meeting was the establishment of the Global Internet Governance Academic Network ([[GIGANET]]) and Euro-SSIG.
