List of Proposed Workshops
Workshop Proposals 2009
Global Capacity Building for Internet Governance
In recent years, developing countries, civil society organizations, and concerned academics have sought to promote broad development agendas in the international institutions and policy debates dealing with such issues as trade, debt, and intellectual property. But in the field of Internet Governance, such parallel initiatives have yet to take shape in adequate numbers and frequencies.
Accordingly, the purpose of this proposed Capacity Building workshop session is to begin a multistakeholder dialogue on the nature of a possible development agenda in Internet Governance.
Time Duration Activity
10 mins Welcome Address by CSDMS
20 mins Inaugural & Keynote Address by Special Secretary, DIT, Govt. of India
30 mins Breakaway Sessions of 3 groups of 5-10 experts each who will discuss their defined topic under the framework of Internet Governance in general and Global Capacity Building in particular.
Breakaway Parallel Session I: This group will proceed towards a multistakeholder doalogue and will explore answers for questions as: Which of the many issues involved in Internet Governance should be given priority in the near-term?
Breakaway Parallel Session II: This group will proceed towards a multistakeholder doalogue and will explore answers for questions as: Could new approaches to these individual issues collectively constitute a holistic and coherent development agenda, and what would be the benefits and risks of pursuing such a framework?
Breakaway Parallel Session III: This group will proceed towards a multistakeholder doalogue and will explore answers for questions as: How can these concerns best be taken forward within the distributed array of governmental, intergovernmental, private sector, and multistakeholder governance mechanisms?
Group presentation by breakaway groups: Each of the breakaway group will present their case and discussion points highlighting key areas of their discussion and emerging action points.
