> work of Minda and Keith here: http://www.irpcharter.org/), it looks like

> However I have sent this now because I couldn’t wait any longer to
> announce the* new IRP co-chair:* *Marianne Franklin!* The IRP had a
> fantastic meeting in Baku despite difficult circumstances (a Friday 9am
> slot and a clash with the first Human Rights Roundtable). It was great to
> see so many people in the room and brimming with so much enthusiasm. The
> most important job on the agenda was to elect a new co-chair as my term has
> now come to an end. I am very pleased to announce that there was
> enthusiastic and unanimous support for *our new IRP co-chair: Marianne
> Franklin from the University of Goldsmiths!** *Marianne has been an
> active IRP Steering Committee member for many years and has proved herself
> a real asset to the Coalition. ****

> *A Steering Committee:* At the meeting we also called for nominations for
> the IRP Steering Committee. We had lots of interest in the room and Norbert
> Bollow, Allon Barr, Michael Gurstein, and Parminder Singh all expressed
> interest. We wanted to open up the call to the list to see if anyone else
> would like to join, and in particular people from government,
> intergovernmental organisations and businesses. It would also be nice to
> get more of a geographical spread. *Matthias and Marianne will follow
> this up with a survey monkey vote in the next 2 weeks so please do send
> your interest through before then.*****
>  ****
> *The IRP at the IGF: *The meeting began with a discussion about the work
> that the IRP are doing with the Council of Europe to clarify user rights in
> the internet environment and to identify redress mechanisms that users can
> employ when their rights are violated. This conversation quickly turned to
> a debate about privacy and anonymity online, and on the responsibilities of
> businesses to respect human rights. The bulk of the meeting focussed on
> what the IRP should be working on over the next year. The results of the
> survey were presented (please find these attached) and then there was a
> lively discussion. The overall message was: *publicise, publicise,
> publicise! *Many people in the room were new to the IRP – they had never
> heard of the 10 IRP or the Charter initiative but thought it was relevant
> to their work and others in their countries and they wanted to be a part of
> it. The other ideas were about going deeper by, for example, taking a
>  Charter article every year and examining more closely to see when, where
> and how it is violated, to identify best practice for different internet
> actors in relation to that article, and to raise awareness. ****

> So, this is my last email as IRP co-chair. I have really enjoyed the role,
> thanks to all of you!****
> Very best,****
