Nominet is sponsoring the apComms Parliament & Internet conference on 13th October and will be running a workshop session on behalf of the UK IGF.
This workshop is intended to share messages from the recent Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Nairobi and look ahead to the 2012 IGF in Azerbaijan. The MPs who attended the meeting will develop the discussion with other British attendees in Nairobi.
We will encourage other participants to respond to experiences of IGF Nairobi, Kenya – what they felt were the key themes and their take home messages.
The intention is to engage in active discussion with the workshop on questions such as:
- How do the global themes and messages from the IGF translate to the UK?
- Are there UK specific issues that haven’t been mentioned?
- How do the global discussions help develop the Internet in the UK?
Nominet will then present the output of recent scenario planning work carried out by SAMI. The session will use this material to focus on preparation for next year’s IGF in Baku, Azerbaijan.
- What are the emerging issues for the UK that need to be raised in Baku?
- Who is missing from the debate and how do we engage them?
In preparation for this workshop we will be posting a series of think pieces on the UK IGF blog to allow participants time to consider a range of views from UK participants in this year’s IGF.
