PROPOSED IGF WORKSHOP - Call for Expressions of Interest/ Participation/ Ideas
I'm thinking of proposing a Workshop to Internet Governance Forum 2012 on
The Internet of Humans : An exploration of emerging sociological and psychological trends in Global Internet Behaviour and their impacts on IG Policy and Practice.
To be truly democratic : ) I'm posting up a call for Expressions of Internet on Google +. If you would like to participate, please let me know. Deadline looming! See description below for more details.
If IG and ICT policy are to be effective, we must cultivate a keen understanding of the ever-evolving human behaviours that accompany an Internet of individuals and communities; a human internet that shapes global society in ever more pervasive ways.
This multi-stakeholder, global and interactive workshop will assemble leading research in sociology and psychology of the internet, social mediaphiles, policy practitioners, businesses, government, and youth to hold a fluid discussion with all stakeholders present to:
discuss a range of research and perspectives in an attempt to demystify and unload the meanings that are embedded in concepts of Privacy, Trust, Freedom of Expression, Openness and Security; and
apply the findings to ICT and IG Policy, and practice.
