AFNIC manages a general interest service. Therefore it is at the crossroads of operators, Internet Service Providers, Internet users, public authorities as well as other national and international parties.

This privileged position and responsability leads AFNIC to participate in the evolution of Internet governance and management. Thus, AFNIC is largely involved in the international relations chorus.

Through its missions, the international actions of AFNIC are focused on three main directions:

  • to contribute and participate to the global Internet governanceand management (WSIS, ICANN, CENTR...);
  • to introduce new standards and services (IETF, RIPE);
  • to transfer its knwowledge and know-how (International College).
