Subject: Re: [NCUC-DISCUSS] OECD and the "Future of the Internet Economy"

Dear Milton Mueller,
Thank you for your timely information!
Since your last message on this and professor Wu's reminder for this, I have discussed with local members how our civil society members could join in this event.  At the moment, the general response is not so positive partly because most of them are exhausted with grappling with local IT concerned issues, but I and our colleagues would push them to cooperate together for this event. 
I want to know more what civil society group are expecting particularly for internet governance issues and what our local members could help other civil society participants. One thing I can say now is that the Ministry of Information & Communication (MIC) has never contacted or informed local civil society members for this preparation although local preparation team has been organized. Of course, local civil society members can address our concerns on this event and find out how we could join in the preparation team. However, at the moment, we are just observing what is taking place. Unfortunately, all preparation things are completely not open. I am just getting some information from IT companies who belong to the preparation team. 

2007/8/23, Milton L Mueller <mueller at syr.edu>: 

	The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation
	and Development) is currently preparing its 10th 
	Ministerial Meeting on "The Future of the
	Internet Economy", which will take place in
	Seoul, South Korea, June 17-18 2008.
	APC and the Internet Governance Project, together
	with EPIC and their Public Voice initiative, are 
	working with the OECD secretariat to increase
	participation of Civil Society groups in shaping
	the agenda of the Ministerial meeting and in
	organising a one day stakeholder pre-event on
	June 16th 2008.
	This message contains general background
	information about the OECD and the 10th
	Ministerial meeting, and some of the
	opportunities for civil society participation.
	A second message will soon follow, outlining 
	these opportunities in more detail, include some
	of our preliminary thinking about priorities for
	civil society engagement with this process, why
	we think you should get involved and how you can get involved. 
	We look forward to working with you on this!
	Jeanette Hoffman, Karen Banks, Milton Mueller
	About The Event
	The OECD, an inter-governmental organisation that
	consists of 30 member Countries, will hold a 
	Ministerial Meeting on "The Future of the
	Internet Economy" in Seoul, Korea, on 17-18 June
	2008. www.oecd.org/futureinternet.
	The OECD Ministerial Meeting aims to formulate 
	guiding principles and policies for the future
	development of the Internet economy. Recognizing
	that the world depends to a growing degree on the 
	Internet, the goal is to help governments
	establish policies responding to new developments 
	and concerns arising from the changing role of
	the Internet in our society and economy.
	The Ministerial meeting will be preceded by a day 
	of "stakeholder fora" on June 16 2008, to give an
	opportunity to civil society and the business 
	sector to present their viewpoints on the future
	development of the Internet economy. More
	information on the Ministerial and Stakeholder fora are available 
	The OECD Ministerial Meeting offers a broad 
	international public space to discuss the
	economic and societal implications of the
	emerging information economy. Civil society
	groups active in the area of information society 
	related issues should use this opportunity to 
	network among themselves and collectively express
	their visions on guiding policy principles for
	the development of the Future of the Internet economy.
	About The OECD 
	Membership in the OECD includes the majority of 
	European countries, Canada, the United States,
	Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Turkey, Japan and
	Korea. The OECD headquarters (the secretariat) is based in Paris. 
	The OECD provides a setting where governments can 
	compare policy experiences, seek answers to
	common problems, identify good practice and work
	to co-ordinate domestic and international
	policies. The OECD engages in policy analysis, 
	data gathering, monitoring, and forecasting in 
	many different areas but in particular for
	economic, environmental and social issues. In the
	fields of digital economy and information
	society, the OECD covers many areas that are of 
	interest to civil society, such as privacy law 
	enforcement, user-created content, network
	neutrality and gender in ICT employment. Reports
	of the OECD Committee of Information, Computer
	and Communications Policy can be found at ( www.oecd.org/sti/ict)
	The OECD has relationships with about 70
	non-member countries and a number of 
	non-governmental entities such as the Business
	and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) and the
	Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC). There is 
	as yet no formal link to civil society
	organisations, but the OECD is currently 
	considering its relationship to the
	non-governmental sector with a view to greater inclusion.
	Public Consultation - open until September 14th 2007 
	The OECD Online Public Consultation provides an 
	opportunity for all stakeholders to comment on
	the topics and issues to be discussed at the
	OECD's Ministerial meeting on the Future of the 
	Internet Economy. The online consultation is open
	until September 14th and can be found here: 
	Please contact us if you have difficulty

	information about opportunities for Civil Society
