Hi all,

To clarify things, I am not organizing this workshop (and I don't think our Turkish activists friends need any of us to organize such events). I've been invited by Turkish colleagues (some of them running an EDRI member association) to participate, and I proposed to share my own experience in terms of advancing human rights in Internet governance field through different regional and global spaces.
BTW, same applies to the two-days conference that follows on 4-5 September, and organized by the same group of Turkish activists organizations and individuals. 
You are probably aware that some of them have decided to boycott the IGF, others will participate and be active at IGF. In any case, they are all involved, in one way or another, to this "parallel" activities.

> Governance or Ungovernance: A Strategy Workshop for Internet Activists
> The workship is designed for people new to the arena who may be:
>   * confused about all the complicated and overlapping institutions that claim to be working on Internet governance
>   * unsure about how activists concerned with local censorship and surveillance fit into these global structures
>   * wondering how the IGF, ICANN, IETF, the ITU, the CSTD, and NetMundial are relevant to their collective engagements
> It will be held 3 September 2014 (Wednesday), 13:00 18:00, in Istanbul near Taksim Square
