Help us design the new IG building!

Colleagues, you may recall the IG building, which has served us well as an IG awareness- building tool over the last 10 years. It was sketched 10 years ago during one of the long WGIG meetings. The building reflected the Internet of 2004 when, for example, Twitter did not exist and social media was just emerging. How different should the new 2014 IG building be? Should it be more solid and sophisticated?…

As tech-savvy youngsters in Tunisia and Egypt pushed aside their ageing despots, the surprising criticism are hurrying to not only include online activism in the mainstream of the political and social transformation in the Arab world but a calls for push…

Post Arab Revolution Mandate for Internet Governance in the MENA Region

Although Internet Freedom represents progress in Tunisia.The Internet is an essentially private environment and therefore demands greater accountability from the private sector. There is no goverance mechanismes that prioritize strategic IG governance over the buisness market or the deficient government bureaucratic policies to the respect of human rights, cyber-security or privacy.

In Tunisia, these objections shall be briefly reviewed the private sector should implement a reliable…

Enhancing Open Governance Advocacy for Internet Governance in Tunisia

Tunisia has portrayed itself as a model of Internet governance (IG) in the MENA region by holding various IG debates with multiple stakeholders (WSIS 2005). By engaging in the Open Governance Partnership (OGP) initiative in 2011, Tunisia sought to promote transparent governance by committing to respect and deliver the action plan of the Open Governance Declaration.

To establish a new road map for more inclusive IG in Tunisia, policymakers must devise institutional reforms that target…

[Webinar] Evidence and measurement in IG: What sort of data and numbers are we talking about?

Although the Internet is an engineering artefact, we have very little data relevant for Internet Governance (IG). In cybersecurity, for example, we are still in doubt about the number of threats and the size of the losses incurred. The same applies in other IG fields. Without understanding the scope of the problem, it is difficult to discuss possible…
