Teaching Internet Governance - experiences from 10 years of SIGs

Description

The idea for enhanced efforts of academic research and training in Internet Governance was discussed within WGIG in 2004 and in Tunis in 2005. Two international recognized academic organisations - IAMCR & ICA - took the various ideas and developed two concrete proposals:

  1. The establishment of a Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GIGANET) and the
  2. The launch of Schools on Internet Governance (SIG).

GIGANET is now well established and has annual events before each IGF and also regional meetings.

For training the EuroSSIG was the pilot project, followed by the South School on IG. Over the years the concepts has evolved. We had a first SIG in 2009 in Cairo. We saw the start of the African Summer School. Now we see this concept growing in Asia and we see a lot of national initiatives (Brazil, Pakistan, India, Kenya, US etc.). These initiatives more or less take the original SIG concept as a source of inspiration and adjust it to their regional needs.

Taking all this into consideration we should reflect on the concept and its further development. What kind of education do governments expect? What people are needed for the business sector and how can SIG’s help to get a deeper understanding how technical aspects influence human rights and security.

A platform for collaboration among all schools can help to guarantee the high quality of all schools. Establishing an IGF Dynamic Coalition to enhance communication, coordination and collaboration among the various initiatives seams a viable option.

The workshop should serve to explore the following topics:

  1. Identification of stakeholder needs for future IG capacity building
  2. Identification of ways for collaboration among SIG’s
  3. Exchange of experiences among the various SIGs (good practice),
  4. Discussion of the feasibility of the formation of an IGF Dynamic Coalition on Schools for Internet Governance (DC-SIG)

Representatives from all stakeholder groups will have the chance share their views. Coordinators of SIG initiatives will provide input and talk about their regional experiences. The floor will be opened to the audience to help us identifying stakeholder needs for future IG capacity building. A discussion about the need and feasibility of a Dynamic Coalition will follow.

FREEDOM HOUSE
Do you or someone you love advocate for the rights of women, LGBT people, the disabled, or religious minorities? Are you interested in learning how these communities operate online-- the unique threats they face, their obstacles to access, and their advocacy strategies? Join Freedom House as we host an open panel with activists from five countries (India, Kenya, Jordan, Mexico, and Tunisia) at the intersection of these constituencies and online rights. Each activist, representing one or more of these groups, is writing a country assessment report on marginalized communities in digital and mobile spaces and will share their work, address questions. Some are relative newcomers to the internet governance space, so we invite you to both learn from them and to share your own expertise as advocates working together to address threats, obstacles and opportunities for marginalized communities online.

Dhouha Ben Yousseff (DR Tunisia); Japleen Pasricha (Feminism in India); Moses Karanja (Kenya, Strathmore University); Oliver Trejo (Mexico, Heartland Alliance); Khalid Abdel-Hadi (My.Kali magazine, Jordan)

DC Coordination Session

Thursday 8 December, 16.30-18.00

Workshop Room 9

Proposed Guiding Questions


I. Organizational Best Practices

1. What works well in your coalition, what doesn't? 

2. How do your meetings take place throughout the year? Virtually, face-to-face, and how often? 

2. How strong is your participation and output?


 

II. Co-Facilitators and IGF Secretariat Role

1. Are coordination meetings helpful? How could they be done better?

2. Is having a DCs main session and coordinating efforts toward the session valuable to you?

3. Is there an additional role the co-facilitators or Secretariat should play? 

4. The Secretariat maintains/monitors established parameters for forming a DC and for considering it "active": are these adequate and fair? 


 

III. Coordination Moving Forwar

1. Should DCs' terms for coordination be expanded upon? Is the current ToR satisfactory?

2. The ToR mentions identifying synergies and facilitating collaboration. What opportunities could there be for substantive collaboration? Should DCs take on a joint substantive project? 

3. There was support for the issue surveys from DCs in the recently held webinar. Should DCs repeat the survey exercise next year? If so, what could a potential timeline look like?

3. Outside of planning for a possible main session next year, what expectations do DCs have for coordinated work in 2017?
