Hi all


Here's my stab at a workshop proposal on practical dimensions of
incorporating rights into IG.  I'll be submitting this on behalf of my
company, Global Partners...it caused much confusion when I tried to
submit last year's on behalf of the coalition. But I obviously want to
collaborate, and would welcome comments and suggestions.  I'm still
discussing this with my colleagues, so it may change.  We have to submit
it tomorrow.


All the best,



Human rights, values and principles in internet governance: Practical
steps forwards.


This workshop will examine practical strategies for incorporating human
rights standards into internet governance processes and policies.
Building on the commitment and momentum generated amongst different
stakeholders at the IGF 2008 workshop, Mainstreaming Human Rights in
Internet Governance, this workshop will help individuals and internet
governance organisations to take practical steps to protect and expand
universal human rights within their work and activities.  


The workshop will provide an update on the progress made by different
initiatives throughout the year, and explore challenges and
opportunities for their continuation and expansion.  Discussion will be
rooted in specific contexts and case study material in order to develop
practical strategies and solutions rather than only theoretical debate.
The workshop will be highly interactive, inviting audience members to
feed in their experiences and ideas.  It will provide a space for
furthering understanding about human rights and internet governance, and
for fostering collaboration between stakeholders from the business,
civil society and government sectors to address critical issues.

Hi everybody

workshop proposals have to handed in by tuesday

as discussed in our meeting let's see whether we can organize:

- our coalition meeting: reporting on our years work, present and
discuss definitions for rights/principles approach and strategy

- a workshop on: best practices & instruments (hands-on) how to promote
rights and principles [i understand/hope Lisa will coordinate that

- a round table on rights and principles (bringing together decision
makers and try to set an agenda pursue jointly) - i am not sure wether
the idea of round tables has actually been accepted; i asked bertrand in
a message

- a workshop on: rights in principles in social network governance [this
would be with a group of co-organizers, who i have just contacted to
coordinate the production of a proposal]
