There is an ongoing debate about the answerability of IG organizations and the various stakeholder groups involved,to the broader community and how to build that in practice.Continuing a previous IGF discussion regarding civil society participation in policy-making, this workshop will focus on civil society’s transparency, openness and answerability. The goals are to evaluate the current situation in different areas associated to IG including trade and cybersecurity, highlighting existing efforts to build frameworks and/or principles such as ICANN reform or Brussels Declaration and outline set of principles . 

The roundtable focuses more on global organizations or processes in order to build practices that can be applied or adapted to other areas, also adjusted to national levels.

To steer an interactive discussion leading to actions-oriented outcomes the question below will be addressed:
1- How international organizations build their “constitution”, structure and processes to respond to expectations such as transparency, openness,diversity, inclusion, legitimacy, representation and accountability
2- How stakeholders in particular civil society strategize their participation ? what are they using as mechanisms and approaches to justify their actions and maintain transparency?
3- What is the influence of processes and restructuring within the organizations and stakeholders in term of agenda-setting, issues framing and yielding outcomes?
4- Can we envision a set of principles, best practices, mechanism or even process template that can be shared between all IG organizations and processes?
