Just wanted to follow up from Minda's post last week. The two workshops
co-organized by IRPC on minorities (WS2) and refugees (WS10) were a
great success thanks to all the hard work of the wider organizing team,
and to IRPC members who played key roles on the day, remote moderating,
report writing, and generating substantial input from networks and
individuals further afield.
The hashtag for WS 10, #refugeesinternet, actually trended on Twitter so
if that is an indication of interest in the links between
refugees/newcomers, human rights, and internet access we did well.
Our speakers included representatives from a range of views and
experiences. We were also able to engage with the technical community
during WS2 and with political representatives in Brussels in WS10.
The aims for both sessions were achieved. The outputs will be up on the
Wiki in the near future so looking forward to seeing these two
interconnected themes move along within IG agendas that consider the
full spectrum of human rights law and norms!
Thank you to all of those who made it possible
