Session: On the outside, looking in, real world solutions to effective participation in ICAN, IGF and ITU

Time: 
Fri, 2011-09-30 09:00 - 10:30

Concise Description:
Description:
It is neither easy nor simple to follow or effectively participate in the organizations that manage the Internet’s resources. This session will look at what the barriers are, what efforts are being made to remove them, and how everyone from civil society to governments to business, in both developed and developing countries, can improve their participation in key Internet organizations.

Approach:
The panelists have participated in key Internet organizations at the highest levels, and often been advocates for greater participation by others.

The session will start with a rundown of common themes and issues that prevent or discourage effective participation, drawing in particular from a recent independent report into ICANN's accountability and transparency.

Questions will then be taken from in the room and online and put to the panelists for responses and insights. We hope to elicit a wide range of views from business, government and civil society from both developed and developing countries, with extensive participation and interaction encouraged from attendees.

Issues to be tackled include:
• How to find information and follow current topics
• What barriers exist, and how to get around them
• Cultural, financial and societal biases, and how to tackle them
• Making the most of the systems currently in place
• Being an advocate for improvement
