Apologies in advance if you receive this notice from more than one list, but in case anyone is coming to the IGF and wants some reading for the plane, I thought I would share the below.

On Day 0, Monday 1 September, a group of partners have organized an event called, NETmundial: Looking Back, Learning Lessons and Mapping the Road Ahead.  http://sched.co/1r7K8s3  It will run from 9:00 - 18:30 in Workshop Room 02 (Rumeli Ground Floor / Room B2), and the IGF Secretariat informed me yesterday that remote participation will be available via the IGF website, albeit in “test mode.”  

As part of this event, from 14:30-16:00 there will be an e-“book” launch of a project I coordinated.  Authors who will be speaking will include myself and Jeremy Malcolm  (EFF), Markus Kummer (Internet Society), Anriette Esterhuysen (APC), Carlos Affonso Pereira de Souza (ITS), Emma Llansó  and Matt Shears (CDT), Wolfgang Kleinwächter  (U. Aarhus), and perhaps one or two others.

In advance of the launch discussion, the book has been released today.  Please see the announcement below.  We hope you find the material useful.


Beyond NETmundial: The Roadmap for Institutional Improvements to the Global Internet Governance Ecosystem explores options for the implementation of a key section of the “NETmundial Multistakeholder Statement” that was adopted at the Global Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance (NETmundial) held on April 23rd and 24th 2014 in São Paulo, Brazil. The Roadmap section of the statement concisely sets out a series of proposed enhancements to existing mechanisms for global internet governance, as well as suggestions of possible new initiatives that the global community may wish to consider. The sixteen chapters by leading practitioners and scholars are grouped into six sections: The NETmundial Meeting; Strengthening the Internet Governance Forum; Filling the Gaps; Improving ICANN; Broader Analytical Perspectives; and Moving Forward.
The book was produced as a part of the Internet Policy Observatory, a program at the Center for Global Communication Studies (http://www.global.asc.upenn.edu/), the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. It was edited by William J. Drake of the University of Zurich and Monroe Price of the Annenberg School for Communication. They were assisted by Laura Schwartz-Henderson, Briar Smith, and Alexandra Esenler.
