(Mid-Assignment) A safe secure sustainable Internet and the role of stakeholders

The 9th Annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF) took place in Istanbul, Turkey early September 2014 and one topic which attracts my attention among the other topics of significance being discussed is ‘A Safe Sustainable Secure Internet and the role of the Stakeholders’.  It sets me thinking about how the Internet can be such a magical tool while being at the same time a harsh weapon to spill off your face.  I called it the 4S in the evolution of the Internet and there are so much…

Internet comme moteur de la croissance et du développement

Malgré les efforts consentis par les différentes parties prenantes des objectifs du millénaire pour le développement quant à la réduction de l’extrême pauvreté, l’on constate qu’elle continue à sévir dans plusieurs pays à travers le monde dont la RDCONGO.

En effet, les gouvernements, les organisations nationales, régionales et Internationales travaillent d’arrache-pied, dans le cadre des projets d’appuis à l’amélioration de la situation sociale et économique des populations. Cependant…

The African Declaration on Internet Rights and Principles

African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms was launched during the 2014 IGF at Istanbul. In true African style, the Declaration has a long title, similar to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights, on which it is based.

 

The Declaration espouses 12 principles among them openness, freedom of expression, right to association…

ICANN Reform

One key actor in the Internet Governance (IG) process is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). ICANN’s primary role is to manage the Internet Infrastructure (i.e. domain names, internet protocol numbers, and root servers). Legally, ICANN is a private business incorporated in the US; therefore, its operations are subject only to US law.

On the surface, ICANN’s role may be viewed as merely technical. In reality, though, ICANN’s role has both policy and…

Network neutrality, why Africa’s disinterest?

Introduction

Network neutrality has been defined as treating all data packets on the Internet equally: no priority to be given to any data package based on origin, type, destination or any other criteria. Link to this definition - http://goo.gl/uL65Rr

African dilemma

The debate about network neutrality has been raging in the international arena mostly in the US but we have not heard much…

Empowering The Youth on The Internet

Youth Empowerment on the Internet

 

The youth in many developing countries are in a disadvantaged position due to many factors primary among which is financial. Secondarily we have issues of educational nature but mostly to do with curriculum enhancements. There should be a middle ground between restrictions and security for youth access to Internet content and at the same time we should involve the youth in current issues affecting the use of the Internet. If we achieve all…

MINDSETS AND THE BALANCE IN CREATING A PROPER NATIONAL DIALOGUE ON INTERNET GOVERNANCE - A SUB SAHARAN AFRICAN PERSPECTIVE.

 

Easier said than done, what actually should make all the boxes tick if we look overall at the multistakeholder model of the Internet governance?  Well simply said and widely written on   it is however in my opinion trying to get all within the sphere of equality to have a level playing field where all voices count.    

However sometimes these do not really happen at national level of Internet Governance especially in developing countries notably Sub Saharan Africa, as…
