Profile Information

Did you take the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme - IGCBP from DiploFoundation? If so, in which year? Who was tutoring you?
I took the Internet Governance Capacity Building Course in 2007. My tutor was Mwende Njiraini but the first part we started with Veronica Cretu.
What are you currently doing today and projects you have related to Internet governance?
Currently (as am away from home) I am planning to do research on cross-cultural working through the Internet, using the IGCBP as my case study. I invite those that might be interested to join me. If you are interested send me an e-mail.

When I get back home, the plan is to team up with other DIPLO alumni in Malawi and build capacity locally. Entry point will be students.
In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
The capacity building provided by Diplo has helped broaden my knowledge on internet governance issues both through learning (the online course) and through experience after spending 3 months at the UN-IGF secretariat. It is now clear to me which stakeholder groups are involved, the IGF priorities, themes and the approach used that creates an enabling environment for all stakeholders.

Further, the knowledge gained through the IGCBP modules is valuable. The basket where we covered e-democracy and e-governance enabled me to examine a number of examples of e-participation in the case of my country and explore the progress, problems of and prospects for e-democracy and, ultimately e-governance. The results were presented at EDemocracy 2008 conference in Austria.

What can be done to have the ICT Policy approved?

Below is some text from my blog: vazene.blogspot.com

The aim to solicit ideas of what we can do in Malawi to have our ICT Policy approved. Suggestionsare welcome and those can be posted on my blog.

The APC-ICT Policy hand book mentions that a policy can be pursued by a government, party, ruler, statesman etc. In the Malawi context, "Boma ndi anthu"- the people are part of a government and if the people make up a government, it means each one of us has the mandate to pursue… Continue

I like to hear that you frame it as an encouragement :-)
So, now that you are encouraged shall we set up a small goal?
If you would feel like writing a short blog piece, what would it be about and when would be a feasible date that you could set it up? If you allow me, I would love to participate in this process by exchanging ideas with you.
