To: irp <Irp at lists.internetrightsandprinciples.org>

Hi everyone:

I know it is sort of a late call, but we (Center for Technology and
Society - CTS/FGV) have been considering the proposal of a workshop
for the next IGF to discuss the several documents on internet
governance principles that have been around recently. Of course the
IRP would play a relevant role on that debate as we have the Charter
and the 10 Principles to report on.

The general idea of this workshop is to compare those documents and to
get people to debate procedural and substantive issues that such
initiatives have faced. Another goal is to have a session that could
frame the multistakeholderism debate as a debate over principles for
internet governance.

Any suggestion is more than welcome. We are open to any comments on
the substance and the panelists that could be involved to foster the


Internet Governance Principles: different initiatives toward the
improvement of a global internet governance

The establishment of principles that should govern and enlight future
regulation of key aspects of the Internet are at the core of the
debate over Internet Governace. In a multistakeholder approach (being
multistakeholderism itself a fundamental internet governance
principle), a number of initiatives have been launched in recent years
as to debate and frame charters, bills and recommendations.

What are the similarities of such initiatives and how a better
understanding of such enterprises could lead us to a more
participative, transparent and effective internet governance? The
workshop will focus on the challenges that such initiatives have
faced, from organizational issues (such as diverse representation,
ways to take stock of different perspectives and to reach agreement)
to content issues (such as the preponderancy of some principles and
which ones are the most contingent ones).

The workshop would tentatively gather for discussion representatives
of (i) IGF?s Internet Rights and Principles Dynamic Coalition (?10
Principles for Internet Governance?); (ii) Council of Europe Ad Hoc
Advisory Group on Cross-border Internet (?Draft Declaration on
Internet Governance Principles?); (iii) Brazilian Government (?Marco
Civil da Internet?); (iv) CGI.br (?Principles for the government and
use of Internet?); and (v) APC (?Code of Good Practice on Information,
Participation and Transparency on Internet Governance?).
