Marianne Franklin is coordinating this year’s meeting, which will include a discussion on Article 4 of the Charter: Right to Development through the Internet. We are very pleased that SC member Rigobert Kenmogne will be joining the discussion alongside former IRPC co-chair  and SC member Hanane Boujemi, Ilias Iakovidis, European Commission, DG Connect - who was part of the Plenary 4 at EuroDIG last June, and Vesna Manojlovic, RIPE NCC.
