The Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG) has announced the names of the CS nominees who are being endorsed by the CSCG, and sent to the IGF Secretariat as candidates for the 2015 MAG. We thank everyone who participated in the selection process: first, those who offered their names for consideration, then those involved in the discussions, encouragement and endorsement processes around the world. You can read more about Diplo's MAG member endorsement process here, where your comments and votes were an indispensable part of this e-participation IG-shaping process.

Good luck to those who are being recommended by the CSCG.

List of nominees endorsed by the CSCG:

  1. Sunil Abraham (India)
  2. Renata Avila (Guatemala)
  3. Oh Byoungil (South Korea)
  4. John Dada (Nigeria)
  5. Avri Doria (USA)
  6. Stuart Hamilton (United Kingdom)
  7. Lea Kaspar (Croatia).
  8. Jak SM Kee (Malaysia).
  9. Ephraim Percy Kenyanito (Kenya)
  10. Virginia Paque (Venezuela)

In addition, Fatima Cambronero is being endorsed for continuation on the MAG.

There was an impressive list of candidates nominated by a larger civil society coalition including Diplo, APC, Best Bits, IGC, NCSG, and Just Net. This was not an easy process for the CSCG, but it was an excellent challenge to have, given the quality of the candidates and the resulting list. With this process, CS increased the legitimacy of its nomination process, and the probability of having CS selections accepted in full by the UN IGF Secretariat for CS representation.
