>what is the link between this commission and the High Level panel?

There is none.

Doesn’t everyone understand that we are in an uninstitutionalized (or maybe pre-institutionalized) world in which anyone can take private initiatives, and these initiatives of necessity come from the self-appointed and have no monopoly on authority? CIGI and Chatham House have as much right to set up shop and declare themselves promulgators of ideas and principles as Fadi’s High Level Panel, the Internet Governance Project, or the Anonymous crowd.
