>> Meeting - Unesco 2013, EuroDIG 2013, 2014 and 2016),
>> - representing the IRPC as part of the EuroDIG 2013 working group,

>> - rapporteuring for IRPC meetings and workshops (WS “Towards a Human

>> EuroDIG 2013 | WS “Confronting the digital divide (2) - Refugees, human

>> - organising on behalf of the coalition a Lightning Session: “Human

>> Charter’s Resource Guide - initiated a couple of years ago by Kevin Kisser,
>> Robert Bodle and Syracuse University law students -  which is now open for

>> the IRPC members and representatives of the different stakeholder groups,

>> ongoing work of the coalition at the Internet Governance Forum.
