Dear all

This year is the year of WSIS+10 so this has a direct impact, and 
longer-term implications for what happens at this year's IGF and the 
IGF's own future as well as its role in other global consulations.

The recent CSTD session of UNCTAD who deliberate over the (fate of) the 
IGF has produced an outcome document; here it is below in the form of a 
Draft Resolution, /"Assessment of the progress made in the 
implementation of and follow-up to the outcomes of the World Summit on 
the Information Society" /is now online:


Mention of the IGF is 4/9 and 5/9 with a range of other familiar points 
of agreement, and disagreement covered in this 9-page document.

FYI, an informal working group, one of four, was formed during the 
UNESCO meeting in February. I am convening the group looking at how 
human rights do, and should figure on the upcoming WSIS+10 meeting 
agenda. We have an etherpad open for comments and input with the aim of 
developing links between work achieved so far in conjunction with the 
contribution that the IRPC Charter has made in this area to present, 
along with other like-minded projects (e.g. CoE Guide, Marco Civil, 
UNHRC Resolutions) to consider how human rights do, and should figure on 
the upcoming WSIS+10 meeting agenda.

How to move forward and in what ways that can be as inclusive as 
possible are the next steps. All input welcome
