IGF 2011 is not over: E-participate in the output!

Did you say you wanted input into the IGF 2011 process, even though you could not attend in person?

Did I hear you say you wanted some output from the IGF process? Please help us continue the discussion started in Kenya...

The IGF Kenya 2011 Workshop 67 E-participation Principles
http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/component/chronocontact/?chronoformn... with background paper http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/components/com_chronocontact/uploads...
produced a first draft of a set of principles for e-participation, particularly in reference to multistakeholder global policy processes as a concrete output of the workshop. This was produced in collaborative editing with in situ and remote attendees, all 'e-participants'.

The discussion draft produced using iEtherpad ( iEtherpad.com ) during the workshop itself can be viewed at:

A draft of the principles was drawn up based on that discussion, and is now open for comment at

Please visit the collaborative discussion page, to make your comments on any one of the sections

Equality of participation
Scale and stability
Capacity building
Providing platforms
A case study: E-participation at the heart of the IGF

by clicking on the section name in the Table of Contents. You can then make a comment on any one of the principles on that page, by clicking on the succession icon. You can review other comments at the same time, and reply or build on another comment as well.

After the draft is open for discussion for at least 30 days, and all points appear to be clarified, a second draft will be proposed for further comment.

We look forward to your contributions. If you have any questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact me at VirginiaP at diplomacy.edu

E-participate! :)
