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 proposal]

- 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]

ok if there are more ideas/proposals for workshops please take a look at the proposal form below which needs to be submitted @ http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/index.php/component/chronocontact/?chronoformname=WSProposals2009
