Consultation to explore building a transnational advocacy network of networks on public policy related to internet governance

By APC (October 2008, APC )

APC convened a small consultation on 15 September 2008 in Geneva to explore how best civil society networks can be more effective in ensuring openness, human rights and transparent and accountable governance in the information society sphere.

The objectives of the meeting were to:

  • establish and concretise an initial partnership with key existing strategic partners;
  • establish what the key public ‘information society’ policy issues and spaces are perceived to be;
  • discuss the parameters of building a transnational global advocacy network on information society policy issues
  • begin to map what elements would bring the various disparate thematic networks together in such a network
  • identify additional potential partners in important thematic sectors
  • identify short term priorities and activities

Twelve participants representing seven organisations active in internet governance, media policy and reform, ICTD (information and communication technology for development), digital rights (civil liberties and human rights), and access to knowledge attended the meeting . While participation lacked sufficient diversity we did manage to bring people together from Asia, Africa, Latin America, North American and Europe, and from a variety of thematic work areas.
