Hi everyone:

I would like to volunteer to act in the Steering Committee as well in this
new stage of the coalition. Things have changed since we all began in 2006,
but if there something we may all agree is that the debate over internet
rights is getting more and more lively. So here is my bio and statement.

Carlos Affonso Pereira de Souza

I am the vice-coordinator of the Center for Technology & Society (CTS) at
the Getulio Vargas Foundation's (FGV) Law School in Rio de Janeiro. I hold
a Doctoral and a Master degree in Civil Law
at the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ, 2009 and 2003).

Currently I am in the US as a visiting fellow at Yale's Information Society
Project (ISP) and a Policy Fellow at the Access NGO. I usually teach in the
graduation and post-graduation courses of FGV and PUC-Rio on Intellectual
Property and Internet Governance.

In the internet governance environment I have been a councillor at the
Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO/ICANN), representing the
non-commercial users constituency (NCUC) from 2008 to 2009, and a member of
NCUC's Executive Committee (2010).

I have been in what is now the Internet Rights and Principles initiative
since the time it was the Internet Bill of Rights dynamic coalition. We
(CTS/FGV) organized a small workshop in 2008 with coalition members during
the Creative Commons' Isummit in Japan and have later helped around the
Charter drafting as a member of the IRP Steering Committee.

I believe most of you know about the Bill on civil rights for the Internet
that we are trying to aprove down in Brazil. One of my main interests in
the next year for the coalition would be to connect the experience that we
are having in the national level with the international effort that the IRP
is spearheading. There is much to lear about online collaboration, the
practice of a multistakeholder governance model and the organization of
interests around a human rights driven debate.
