While the Arab Spring amplified the voices of Internet users and civil society in the MENA region, the NETmundial meeting showed how divergent the positions of different MENA stakeholders remain. With the IGF taking place close to the region in a few days' time, what opportunities will this provide to MENA stakeholders?
The August Internet governance webinar will focus on developments in IG MENA, and will be led by Hanane Boujemi from Hivos’s IGMENA, who helped develop the Arab Regional Roadmap for IG, and coordinated the input of the wider IG MENA community to NETmundial. The webinar discussions will include:
- the Arab region's participation in NETmundial, and the outcome of the Arab region's contribution;
- the latest developments taking place at a regional level; and
- what we can expect from the MENA region during the next IGF.
