  1.  Allow IG decision makers around the world to be able to consider polling results from well-informed “netizens” as a reference.
  2. The project will surface the effect of informed deliberation by analyzing the delta between the preferences of stakeholders as they developed their opinions through “normal” media coverage and campaigning, versus the preferences they hold after they have been exposed to balanced briefings and deliberations.
  3. The creation of balanced briefing materials about global Internet policy challenges contribute an important resource and reference point in this very complex and fast moving policy sphere.
