Following on from Milton's observation concerning the imbalance in the representation from the business community I would propose to Inet that there are two groupings within CS. One that articulates the interests and concerns of those with a primary vocation in the area of free expression, human rights and related matters, and a second which articulates the interests and concerns of those with a primary vocation in the area of "Internet Justice" as for example identified in the CI Declaration.
That being the case a second “nominating committee” in the Internet Justice area would be created to nominate representation in the various forums emerging out of the Brazil conference and elsewhere.
The CI Declaration's recognition of "Internet Justice" is quite admirable, but I am unaware
of 1net taking any position regarding this principle. To establish a second nominating
committee based on such a principle would be premature (to best of my knowledge, at this
time the only foundational statement of principles for 1net is the Montevideo Statement on
the Future of Internet Cooperation)
I am not suggesting that your proposal isn't worthwhile, only that it is premature given that
is it based on principles not yet considered. One of the important work items for a 1net
steering committee (in my view) is to establish how 1net work items will be selected, and
how consensus on 1net outputs will be determined - those appear to be fundamental tasks
which would allow consideration of "Internet Justice" as 1net principle.
