These documents provided important context for UNESCOs comprehensive Internet Study, titled Keystones for the Internet. However, it was also clear that there a need for a specific review of the declarations and frameworks from the perspective of UNESCOs mandate. This publication fulfils this role and it shows that while each of these other documents has its own value, none of them fully meets UNESCOs interests and mandate. It is proposed therefore that UNESCO adopt the concept of Internet Universality as the Organisations own clear identifier for approaching the various fields of Internet issues and their intersections with UNESCO concerns. Internet Universality highlights the contribution that can be made by an Internet that is based on four principles, recognized by UNESCO governing bodies.
