Diplo Internet Governance Community

Stay networked. Get informed. Broadcast your projects.

Belarusian hub remote participation has been organized as a civic initiative by Belarusian virtual think tank e-belaus.Org in cooperation with Foundation for Mass Media Communications (Belarus) and
Foundation for Legal Technologies Development.

There were 8 participants in the hub representing business community, mass media, lawyers, civil society, academy and youth.

While organizing remote participation we had 2 objectives in view:

·         To use the occasion for raising awareness of a holistic approach to internet

·         To introduce Belarusian stakeholders to current debate on the internet governance.

Therefore we conducted two workshops before Madrid meeting

1.       Workshop on major issues of internet governance with presentation based on

·         Управление интернет: проблемы, субъекты, преграды http://textus.diplomacy.edu/textusbin/env/scripts/Pool/GetBin.asp?IDPool=1091

·         Internet Governance: Issues, Actors and Divides http://campus.diplomacy.edu/env/scripts/Pool/GetBin.asp?IDPool=9554

2.       Workshop on national IG agenda, which resulted in drafting paper Belarusian Debates on Internet
Governance http://www.eurodig.org/belarus


During Madrid meeting, we followed webcast, participated in chat, and twitted some key points of discussions (twitter.com/InfoPolicy). At the same time we have discussed some issues I groups during the webcast.

Information on EuroDig (short press-releases and summaries of the sessions) was disseminated through e-mail lists and placed on infopolicy.livejournal.com/.

Next week we are planning to conduct the third meeting in order to discuss our future
