In advance of the second phase of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) meeting in Tunis, Tunisia, the Number Resource Organization (NRO) has published two important statements. The first is a direct statement about WSIS Phase II and what the NRO is hoping to achieve. The second statement, addressed to representatives of all governments across the world, presents the NRO positions as they relate to the topic of Internet Governance.
