Open for Comments: WSIS+10 Review Process Non-paper

The WSIS+10 non-paper is finally officially available here. The key themes are addressed under the following categories:

  1. Digital Divide
  2. ICT for Development
  3. Human Rights
  4. Internet Governance
  5. Cyberspace

The comments that have been distilled to produce this non-paper include inputs from around 20 governments and 26 civil society organizations in addition to comments from 9 technical and academic institutions, 9 private sector entities, and 9 inter-governmental organizations or agencies. The condensed text of the non-paper which is slightly over 4 pages is said to be reflective of the voluminous inputs received.

The comments on this non-paper are now open and the form for the same can be found here. This presents an opportunity to further articulate what has been missed out in the condensed non-paper.

The WSIS+10 Review process marks the 10th anniversary of the World Summit on Information Society that took place in two phases that began in 2003 in Geneva and culminated with the second phase in Tunis in 2005. The WSIS summits are milestones in the development of the information society. This review will evaluate the progress we have made on the WSIS goals while helping us calibrate and realign to new targets.
