Dear Daniel, 

Thank you for your interest in our work and welcome to the list! The website of the coalition (http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/) includes all the info on how the charter is been used in various contexts. Unfortunately, we've had some technical issues recently and the website is been fixed. Once back online, I will share with you the relevant sections. 

I have one example to share with you from MENA and that's Click Rights campaign which was based on the 10 principles, more info here : https://www.igmena.org/click-rights 

Kind Regards, 

Hanane Boujemi

Subject: [IRPCoalition] Internet Norms and Democratic Governance 

Dear IRPC Members, 

The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), the National Democratic Institute (NDI), and my own Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA) are launching a joint initiative to develop Internet norms and principles essential to democratic governance. Our organizations work with a diverse set of democratic reformers in developing countries: CIPE (private sector and civil society), NDI (political and human rights groups), and CIMA (media and journalists). As such, we hope to activate this broad-based network to discuss the relevance of Internet norms to their own work, ideally emerging with an annotated set of principles that will support local advocacy efforts around a free and open Internet to build more inclusive democracies 

The IRPC’s 10 Internet Rights and Principles and Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet have served as excellent guiding documents for our work, and we’d like to thank everyone in this group who participated in their development. We have recently started reviewing the principles to assess adaptability to our partner’s needs, and would welcome any feedback from any of you who may have experience implementing or using the principles directly with specific groups. 

Additionally, we are preparing for RightsCon 2017 in Brussels at the end of March. There we plan to formally launch this initiative by gathering active members of the open Internet community to discuss best practices and practical considerations for adapting and using these principles for advocacy work. If you will be in Brussels and are interested in connecting with our efforts, please reach out to me or one of my colleagues via our contact details below. 

We know that we are newcomers to this group, so we look forward to connecting with and learning from those of you in this group who have much more experience than we do.
