by Nigel Hickson on December 10, 2013

One is never bored at ICANN. Indeed the hectic pace hardly allows the mind to drift at all! I point to last week as an example. It started on Monday in London at the Government and Students and Greenwich University where work on costs of a fragmented Internet is underway at ICANN’s behalf. Then, a […]

墨西哥加入互联网治理的全球对话

by Rodrigo de la Parra on November 12, 2013

墨西哥的各行各业的同仁们—政府、民间社会、技术和商业社群和学术界—于11月4-5日相聚在墨西哥城,举办首届”互联网治理对话”,我有幸也在墨西哥参与了本次活动。 我非常高兴地做为东道主,在我的国家欢迎来自商业和技术社群、各国政府、学术界、国际组织和民间社会等多个行业部门的同事们来此聚会,在为期两天的活动中探讨互联网治理的未来。很明显,本次会议不仅仅谈及了多利益相关方的模型,还将其付诸实践。在这样的精神指导下,在互联网治理论坛(IGF)—这—全球规模最大的、让所有利益相关方都能表达自己的心声的活动—的推动下,各”活动团体”积极地促成了本次对话。 本次大会聚集了来自本国和全球的优秀演讲人。会上,我向大家展示了Fadi为本次会议特别录制的视频,强调推荐使用多利益相关方的模型,并感谢墨西哥在这方面所起到的领袖作用。如想观看Fadi的视频(英文)请点击此处。 我则再次强调了多利益相关方模型是ICANN的创始原则。尽管我们面临着各种阻碍,但这一原则仍在不断地与时俱进、推陈出新。只要我们团结一致,就一定能克服这些阻碍。重要的是,大家能够倾听各方的心声、营造空间交流思想、并理解尽管我们的观点可能会有所不同,但所有利益相关方都致力于保护这一人类合作的伟大发明:互联网。 本次活动在现场和远程参与方面均表现出色(仅在1个小时中,就有350多条推特跟帖提到了本次会议)。本次会议话题众多,包括:互联网治理论坛及其本地/区域性的论坛形式;知识产权和公共访问;言论自由和人权;大规模监管;墨西哥的电信业改革;2014年将于巴西举行的TPP和全球峰会等等。如果大家还想了解有关这次为期两天的会议讨论的更多内容,请查看以下我向大家推荐的一些有意思的话题标签:#gobernanzadeinternet; #IGFMX; #GobIntMX. 在此,我想衷心地感谢多利益相关方活动团体组织了本次对话活动。并向NIC.MX的Oscar Robles和Manuel Haces为这一大家普遍担忧的重要问题所做出的贡献表示特别的感谢。
