Internet governance



Authored by: 

The first edition of Global Information Society Watch (GISWatch) focused on participation in internet governance processes. Published in 2007, it came to the conclusion that effective participation was still out of reach if you were from the global South, or from civil society. Still in its infancy at that point, the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), mandated to ensure the participation of all stakeholders, was the one platform which people believed could actually achieve this goal.

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.
