MAG 2014 Nomination - Requesting your kind support

Full name: Fouad Riaz Bajwa

Gender: Male

Nationality: Pakistan

Country of residence: Pakistan

Organisation: IRP-Pakistan, Internet Research and Advocacy (Private)

Stakeholder group: Civil Society

Background and/or experience in IG (50 words): I have been actively engaged in ICT and Internet Public Policy related issues and advocacy for well over a decade. Educated in Computer Scientist and Public Policy, I contribute as a Senior Public Policy Analyst of a developing country’s national IT policy formulation. My civil society and advocacy group regularly engages with Internet policy makers through face-to-face and media interventions that have supported/facilitated the evolution of pluralism and dissent online. From 2004-2007 I led the Free and Open Source Software FOSS movement in Pakistan that helped establish an open and parallel industry ecosystem in the country also featured during WSIS 2005. From 2007 to 2009, I managed a US$160 million dollar ICT4D international partnership portfolio for a global low-cost computing program.

Motivation and goals (50 words):
I have a deep understanding of the Civil Society issues and experience with Internet Governance. I have been a participant in the WSIS process and a Member of the MAG of the Internet Governance Forum from 2009-2012. I have also been contributing with various Internet Ecosystem member communities such as ICANN and ISOC. I was very active in promoting Internet Governance for Development IG4D in the IGF. I will continue to be vocal and struggle for Civil Society views on the MAG if nominated.
