policies, quotes APC executive director Anriette Esterhuysen, in an article featured today on their website under Latest Open Access News. Internet Governance Forum: Test Of A New Global Governance Model, by Monika Ermert  addresses the debate over the IGF as solely a discussion forum and the potential reformation of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

The article references Anriette's opening session speech at the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Rio de Janeiro: "Civil society representative Anriette Esterhuysen, chair of the
Association for Progressive Communications, warned against letting the
ICANN issue dominate the IGF. 'There are many other critical issues,'
she said during the opening ceremony. Esterhuysen referred to privacy
and other freedoms as being conditional to a more secure network, the
need for open standards, prioritisation of Internet access and
intellectual property regimes that do not strangle creation and
innovation."
