Unless you’re attending the IGF in person, it is generally quite difficult to get a grasp of the general mood and temperature at the meeting. Our Diplo team on the ground, however, did tell us that by Day 3, the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Centre had lost many IGF participants to the beautiful beaches in the Bali area!
For Diplo, Day 3 was a packed day. The workshop on E-participation in IG processes (workshop 68), the only workshop on e-participation, resulted in a final draft of the e-participation principles. The draft was finalised collaboratively (using an online document) during the workshop. The principles, guidelines, and a handbook will be formalised and disseminated in the upcoming months.
In The Emerging Language of Internet Diplomacy flash session, Dr Jovan Kurbalija provided an overview and an update of the project, which entailed an analysis of all the transcripts of the IGF meetings and preparatory meetings. This project provides a goldmine of findings, useful both for academic exercises, but also for evidence-based policy-making. Which stakeholders have been actively engaged, and which are those who have only been participating nominally? Which are the most frequently used words? And how often do developing countries actually make their voices heard? To read more about the project, visit http://www.diplomacy.edu/IGFLanguage
