Just to follow up on Robert's last email with the refreshed link to the
IRPC Charter page on the IGF DC Outputs Review Platform
The page has been edited in such a way to allow two levels of input:
1) On the Five +1 Year Review of the work to date including links galore.
2) The IRPC Charter itself (text-only) and per Article.
As about 2/3 of this list are rather familiar with the Charter text,
indeed have shared in its original drafting and later revisions it would
be great to hear views on the work so far, and any additional impacts
and projects related.
The other third are relatively new to the work so we really welcome your
comments, ideas, suggestions, and information about projects based on
the work too. You don't need to be a human rights expert, a lawyer or a
technical whizz to comment here. We welcome all input.
Hopefully the current format and Comment Boxes are not too daunting.
Thanks to the team at the IGF Secretariat for their support and work to
get this platform up and running. Looking forward to the DC Main
Session, the IRPC Workshop on The Right to Be Forgotten Rulings which is
paired with a workshop looking at case studies of these rulings in
action around the world.
Meanwhile, you can access the page at
or short link; http://review.intgovforum.org/?p=425
Please circulate to anyone you think would like to make a contribution.
Happy Holidays for those of you, like me, about to take them.
