20 September 2005 - Getting to the Gender Ghetto (post-lunch-that-didn’t-happen)

Posted Wed 21 Sep 2005 - 09:45 | 2,885views
In the last hour where I sat through the plenary session, my ears were on high alert for the mention of gender. Granted I only managed to catch a few governments’ statements (i.e. Switzerland, Venezuela, Turkey, Burkina Faso, Singapore, South Africa and Republic of Korea) before stakeholders like the ITU, CCBI and the Civil Society Internet Governance Caucus were given the floor for their...

The evening reception happening outside of the meeting room really tested the commitment of the participants in this meeting (me! me!). But Tracey Naughton (MISA - Media Institute of Southern Africa) who chaired the meeting was amazingly efficient, and despite it starting almost 20 minutes late, she managed to outline the new method and structure of working, faciliate a discussion on its finer...

Admittedly I was late for this because I got hopelessly lost at the Palais de Nations Building. When I finally arrived, still hungry and panting, the meeting was in full-swing. Kind of...

19 Sept 2005 – Opening Plenary (10:00am – 12:00pm)

Posted Tue 20 Sep 2005 - 15:32 | 3,972views
So, all in all, a much more politically charged day than I thought
it would be. For the first time possibly ever, I was actually impatient
to be on time for the Opening Plenary of an event...
(warning: a rather long post that tries to make sense of the Human Rights in China accreditation issue and the politicisation of international advocacy platforms that it exposes)
