GISWatch is a unique experience, I think. Don´t know if there is a similar project in other fields. Having each year the possibility of tackling a particular issue of the field of rights and ICT, convoquing experts to analyse it from different perspectives and counting with about 50 countries in each edition, to get down that analysis to each particular territory is very valuable.
The annual GISWatch reports have become must-read material for analysts and activists concerned with the social, economic and political effects of information and communication technologies.
