Parallel Session #1

Fundacion Karisma - Experiences from Civil Society to Nurture the International Debate on Internet Governance 

The session discussed experiences of civil society to nurture international debate on Internet Governance. A problem that was raised is that in spite of the growing importance of the Internet, the public has lost interest in Internet Governance issues and it is the civil society’s task to restore that interest. Internet Governance is also not about technical issues anymore, e.g. when it is about removing content. Civil society has to make sure that governments adhere to the rules they themselves have agreed on.
