more youth present from Arab world? are you sure? I didn't see so much. if
you are talking about egyptians who mostly of them are volunteers, you
forgot that Egypt organized the last IGF. arab league has 22 country members
and many countries didn't send any youth and even more of them came through
through other organizations or structures and not on behalf of their
respective countries.
in fact there is no so much youth participation because existing programs
cannot provide more fellowships for young people to participate. there are
some initiatives like netmission supported by the registry of dotasia which
brought a good delegation of young participants from China and Hongkong .
