Its important that Internet governance is given its required prime importance and the thought space in order for it to evolve better. Being a technology professional, i feel very connected with this space. I feel its my fundamental responsibility to contribute in this space in whatever capacity I have.||As mentioned in my response to the question 3.1, have a definite urge to contribute in the IG space. As a resident and domicile of the Asia pacific region I want to increasingly connect and colleborate with the stakeholders involved in this domain. APSIG provides us a platform that help us identify experts and upcoming talent/resource in the region. It help us further the cause of capacity building within the region, which to some extent is under represented in the global IG forums. This is inspite of bringing the most volume to the Internet ( even the next billion will come from it).||- AprIGF, Vanatu as MSG and Program Committee Member|

I have been part of the first Nepal SIG held in Nepal in 2017. We organized the event very efficiently and covered a lot of issues. I had also facilitated a session on "right to privacy in the realm of internet governance". As it was the first time, i felt that there are areas where we can improve and at the same time bring more knowledge on thematic issues. Thus, in the APSIG, i want to learn as well as contribute.||Yes. I was also part of the first Nepal IGF held in 2017 and we have been planning second IGF in Nepal in 2018.

I want to become a master trainer/mentor for my organization and community in order to apprise them of the immense potential that ICT solutions have to offer. Pakistan is at the crossroads of a digital revolution after a much delayed launch of mobile broadband in 2014. In just three and a half years, almost 50 million subscribers have adopted mobile broadband as a variety of Internet-based solutions and services are available for use. At the same time, these internet developments are also generating Internet Governance (IG) issues such as privacy, data protection, OTT regulation, cyber surveillance, IoT and AI governance etc. Therefore, it is imperative that forward-looking Policies are advocated in the Government and community alike. Since I work for the regulator and volunteer for community, I find myself to be in an ideal position to facilitate rational Policy development in Pakistan.||APSIG provides a unique learning opportunity for the IG enthusiasts to stay updated about the latest Internet developments in the APAC region. In the current job role and volunteer position, I am responsible to learn and disseminate the knowledge about these emerging issues of IG to the higher management of my organization and community at-large. Therefore, APSIG is the perfect regional platform to interact with the students from all across APAC, build relationships, gather new ideas and engage with the highly reputed IG experts from around the world.||I am already part of the APrIGF MSG, APrIGF Program Committee, Rapporteur on APrIGF Synthesis Document and one of organizers for national lGF of Pakistan. Moreover, I am also working on a workshop proposal for APrIGF 2018.||I have partnered with ISOC-APAC to launch a free remote education project for a girl’s high school in a rural village of Pakistan. Teachers from the capital city of Islamabad deliver lectures on English, Mathematics and Science to the rural village over an internet video link using customized software.

Otherwise it will likely keep on fragmenting and creating walls in itself, like in the case of China, Cuba and many middle eastern countries.If Internet Governance is done properly, the internet can remain a great motor for the future of humankind and its social and economic development. We need to give people access to their own personal data that’s held by the companies, as well as the data produced by the government, paid by us, in the form of taxes. The more relevant information people can access, the faster our collective development will be. Internet has also brought us closer to a global marketplace with perfect information. It’s now harder to sell inferior products that are more expensive. However, projects can now be crowd-funded, which has lead to a plethora of innovations that would otherwise have never seen the light of day.|
So its mandatory to governing and regulating the internet, we must strive to keep it free, neutral and accessible for all. We need to open data, while protecting our privacy. finally Internet Governance plays a crucial role in making sure the playing field stays as equal as possible for all mankind.
|I think APSIG is the most suitable platform to accrue knowledge on Internet governance however it has great role for awareness and capacity building across Asia pacific region. Internet leaders from Asia pacific comes here for speaking and training so it will be a great opportunity for me to learn from them as well as share my thoughts and raise questions for clarifications however making human network gives facilities to exchange information about cross cultural functions as well as governance practices for individual nation. It will in hence opportunity to collaborate with other SIG’s and IGF’s through meeting. Moreover participating APSIG will extend my knowledge on multi stockholders model.||Yes, I have plan to actively participate to national, regional and global IGF. Its need to mention that I have already actively participated in our bdSIG and some of BIGF meeting locally. After gain some depth knowledge on internet governance I can engage myself fully and can make contribution regional as well as global. Also after this fellowship I am willing to take classes.||After bdSIG I have taken ownership to build my local community and that’s way speaking in different university forum about internet governance and its awareness. Moreover I have created my own face book page “Internet Governance” for Knowledge sharing and capacity building. Purpose of this group is to exchange information about Internet Governance and policies and it’s made open for all to share knowledge to build community development and help each other. However Opportunities and events share also promoting in this page.|
Other then I have awarded Policy fellowship at IETF 100 Singapore. So as part of my fellowship responsibility I am engage in encouraging engineer’s to involve them with RFC and internet draft.

As such issues of internet governance not only affect this framework but also every stakeholder downstream. At the same time, at the lowest level of the hierarchy, individual users are not fully aware of the debates and discussions which take place affecting their rights and uses of the internet. As a lawyer who regularly rights for a wider public audience on emerging technology issues, I feel internet governance is critical so as to understand where we are and where we are going as technology becomes more pervasive into our lives with IoT and AI assuming importance.||As a lawyer who regularly rights for a wider public audience on emerging technology and policy issues, I often engage with some of the most cutting-edge technologies for my clients. In order to more broadly relate these to societal issues and concerns, I would like to attend APSIG. Not only will APSIG provide me an opportunity to share my experiences working across diverse sectors such as private and non-profit (Wikimedia), it will be give me a chance to broaden my horizons and learn from the experiences of others within the APAC region. I am contemplating masters-level study in internet-related issues, APSIG would provide a critical input in narrowing topics for further research and dissertation.||Yes, I have plans to participate in the upcoming global IGF as well as APRigf.||I have worked on several of the leading internet law cases globally - both in India and abroad. In my current role, I have worked on several of they key litigations ongoing before the Supreme Court on internet/intermediary liability. Previously, at the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco, I worked on several core internet content cases concerning the right to be forgotten (France), copyright (Spain), and global blocking of content (Canada).

Cyberspace has become a new battlefield for both nations and companies. In the connected society, national borders become vague, and jurisdictions become tricky. For example, laws usually base on the consent of people. However, construction of consent is cultural and contextual, which make the consent become hard to make in cyberspace. The tensions between cultures and nations have become frequent as well as vivid.||We are in the internet era of the digital world today, where access to information, freedom, rights and every important aspects of life is dependent to one eminent change, the internet and the digital technology.

As has been recognized by the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Internet can be an important tool for exercising human rights. For most governments, the Internet serves limited purposes - possibility of better governance through more accessible services, easier outreach to the public, a way to conduct surveilance on the population, and revenue from Internet-based businesses. What is most important from the point of view of civilian populations and activists, is that the Internet can be a major tool for the protection and promotion of human rights and upliftment of groups and classes of population that have been left behind. Parts of the goals of governments and others clash with each other. While governments would generally prefer to have an easy way to access everyone's conversations, whereabouts, and other details so that crimes can be easily prevented and governance can be made easier, civilian populations and activists would object to this on the ground of violation of human rights. The protection of these rights is of utmost importance as we rush headfirst into an age where you are either online, or you are a ghost.||I have a law degree, a masters in cyber law and over one year of work experience in the field of internet governance. However, I believe that I have much to learn from those that are more experienced in the field.

Herein is my particular interest as to see the interaction of the social science, policy debates, technical and business argumentation pertaining the ways in which the Internet is to be harnessed for its capacity to serve the interest of each stakeholder.||The online course I undertook in 2015 and attending AfriSIG 2017 were very enriching experiences in terms of its learning and networking. To be joined with participants from different backgrounds reflects the juncture of multistakeholderism in IG to the smaller processes of maintaining IG at the grander scale. I would like to be a participant to this process to contribute and learn. Most essentially, I would like to be a part of a South-South dialogue in which I get to learn about IG patterns, priorities, principles and processes to map the similarities and understand opportunities for collaboration for future knowledge-production.||Indeed.

Ever since I have been a part of various youth initiatives and groups to foster the role of youth in IG. As a youth ambassador I was part of the pilot team to introduce youth participation at ICANN and other IG forums. Since 2014 my involvement has grown into a devoted volunteer at regional forums, ISOC chapters, APrIGF, and IGF. The role of youth as a stakeholder has gained prominence over the years but it is still quite nascent when it comes to creating impact. I wish to use my time and skills to take IG issues and decision making to a larger base of young empowered netizens. With involvement in groups like YCIG, the newly formed ISOC Mumbai chapter and as alumni of Netmission Ambassador Program I want to work more on decoding this space in terms of content and access and strengthen the policy making process.||Most of my time in the IG sphere has been ad hoc and spaced out. Since I am professionally or academically not directly involved with the topics, I missed out on an entire dimension that involved structurally understanding the details of this mammoth set up. From organisations, hierarchies, regions, issues to processes, and how they work; understanding the space took me a lot longer thus limiting my contribution. I see APSIG as a a means to bridge that gap by gaining adequate knowledge and training of the IG ecosystem. This will allow me to contribute my opinions and participate in the various processes more effectively.||I have attended 2 regional IGFs and one global IGF so far. I wish to keep continuing my participation as I am now also involved with other groups ISOC, YCIG at local, regional and global levels. I plan to actively participate in the various forums to advocate the voice of youth, women and also working on making the multi-stakeholder model more effective.||I am working the the best practice forum of IGF on Gender and Access to bring in voices from the region via case studies, interviews, etc. I also am working on my own project to find the intersection of media and IG. As a journalist I have always questioned the lack of media in this space and how the important matters discussed and formulated at these forums seldom reach the masses.

Despite gaining 79% of population using the internet as of 2016 according to the World Bank finding, the state of advocacy about internet governance in my country is very minimal. Which automatically makes IG becomes an elite knowledge. There are only a handful number of individuals who understands about IG against the rest of the population of the country, and only one local civil society organisation who understand about IG against hundreds of CSOs in the country. This shows that there is still a long way for us to go on keeping tabs on issues that impacts us all while holding the responsible institution accountable of their actions. Malaysia may not face the problem of net neutrality similar with United States, however, we do face a very serious data protection issues for many times that involves private telco companies. We also face serious internet censorship issues that involves the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, i.e. banning of Medium.com due to an independent news organisation reports on kleptocracy and Malaysia's prime minister Najib Razak. There is outrage reaction shown by netizens but such outrage only ends as a knee-jerk reaction. Additionally, the absence of reaction from Internet Society Chapter in Malaysia is deafening. Which is why internet governance becomes an important subject for me to understand and figure out ways to effectively disseminate the knowledge I have on IG in my country.||The reasons I wanted to participate in this APSIG is to learn the right way about internet governance issues and the multi stakeholder processes that are largely responsible for driving these issues, to learn how I can apply the knowledge effectively in my work with Youth4Rights.asia & network with other fellows for possible collaboration.||Yes||I don't have any, yet.||I don't have any, yet.||Yes, I agree.||4||Yes||Full||3 Female from Malaysia interested in IG; need to promote.||4.5||3||3||4||8||17.5||25.5|

It allows billions of people to communicate with each other on the other side of the world, to access information about every aspect of the human life, to access books and research articles and to help learn new courses online. Internet, although still evolving but its primary function as a tool to access information has already been established. But there are countries that censor internet to undermine people’s right of access to information. I see internet as the ultimate digital force that must be governed. This governance should be done with respect to human rights, otherwise it will keep on fragmenting like China, Iran and other middle eastern countries. If the governance of internet is done according to its merits and principles, internet would become a great source for future of mankind and its social and economic development. When governing internet, internet design principles of openness and access should always be kept in mind. We need to open data while guarantying safe and secure internet for everyone. People should have access to their data held by companies. The more relevant information people can access to, the faster collective development will take place. Internet Governance plays a crucial role in making sure the playing field stays as equal as possible for all mankind. The more people we can engage with this universal tool, the more we’ll be able to draw from our collective intelligence. That cannot be achieved through censorship, fragmentation or eroding net neutrality.||Being an electrical engineer with specialization in telecommunication, I have a basic idea about technical aspects and working of internet. But keeping current trends and my interest in mind I believe this is the right time for me to gain further knowledge about internet and related policies. APSIG will provide me with this great platform to start my thirst of deep knowledge where I can interact with people from government, private sector, academia and civil society. Internet is one of the basic needs of the modern world and its time that everyone associated should investigate the challenges faced today. APSIG would not only help me to expand my knowledge related to some of the major regional and international issues regarding the internet and cyber security, such as human rights online, digital gender divide, fake news and its impact in developing countries, privacy and surveillance, cyber-theft, but also about how internet and associated policies should be governed. It will enhance my views regarding internet governance. This will also provide me with the opportunity to interact with people having the same interest and working together to face the challenges faced today in internet domain. I want to throw in myself to IGF’s, ISOC's and other I* organizations' goal of implementing effective policies that will fortify the use of internet and related various issues faced at global, regional and national levels.||Yes. I am planning to participate more actively in IGF domain. I participated in Internet Governance Forum held in Geneva in 2017 as ISOC Youth IGF Fellow, which was an amazing experience. IGF 2017 provided me with the opportunity to interact with people having the same interest regarding the challenges faced in today’s modern world in the domain of Internet. In Pakistan, I also was selected as a fellow for Pakistan School on Internet Governance PkSIG 2017. I am looking forward to playing my active role in first national IGF to be held in Pakistan. I am also very closely following developments in IGF domain in Turkey.||I am currently doing my mater’s research on Internet of Things and security issues associated with it. Other than that, I am currently doing my research on two topics:|
1) Digital Gender Divide and Religion
2) Fight against fake news and hate speech in developing countries
In digital gender divide, one of the observations I made was the role of religion. In some parts of the world, where religion is practiced more than other, women are not given digital access as this is considered something against religion. It is also considered that digital access would stray them away from the right path. Along this important factor, then come along the pressures from society. I am currently doing my research on how to tackle this challenge of misinformation and how can more people be convinced that digital access for everybody would be for the greater good of society and growth.
In fight against fake news in developing countries, I realize that people in developing countries are affecting much more than in developed countries. One of the primary reason being “Digital Literacy”. People are more digitally aware and think more critically about source of any information. Whereas in developing countries both approaches are very rare. My research is currently focussed on how people can be educated and made aware to check the source of information, how can people be encouraged towards more critical thinking rather than believing on every story on the internet, and how governments and private sectors should be engaged to deal with the challenge of digital literacy.

Since the usage of internet applies to millions of young people, it is important for the youth like me to take part in dialogue and discussions related to the current concerns. As India moves into the era of digitalization, there are multiple concerns posed by the proliferation of the Internet in Indian society. Therefore, being a member of the youth and as a citizen of India, it is of utmost importance for me to be schooled in Internet Governance. As an early career researcher, participating in APSIG 2018 will broaden my understanding of the issues surrounding Internet, and their potential solutions. My research since the last two years is based on studying privacy and security concerns in the Internet domain. This makes the issue of Internet Governance highly relevant to my work and I wish to work towards its advancement.||APSIG will enable me to spread awareness regarding the importance of Internet Governance in my local community. It will provide a global platform to convey what the Internet means to me and my community. The variety of people I will meet at APSIG will enable me to understand the issues Internet faces worldwide, find common grounds and engage in knowledge sharing with my peers. I have been a part of multiple youth conferences like the Harvard National MUN 2014 in Boston and the Hansen Summer Institute on leadership and international cooperation. Participating in such international programs has taught me the importance of engaging with the global community on common issues, and the incredible learning experience programs akin to APSIG prove to be. I find a vital need for constructive change that Internet can provide in the Asia-Pacific community, especially in matters related to literacy, poverty, gender divide and governance. In order to harness the power of the internet in the right manner, I wish to be an ambassador for Internet Governance in my local community, which I believe my participation in APSIG will ensure.||I have been fortunate to take an online course on ‘Shaping our Digital Future’ which has ingrained in me the importance of participating in Internet Governance platforms to voice my opinions. I also volunteered for the organizing committee of Global Conference on Cyberspace (GCCS 2017) in India. I already work with the local Internet Society chapter in Delhi, and look forward to taking part in the Asia Pacific Regional IGF. India has a lot of fragmented efforts in the IG domain, through various local chapters. I wish to coordinate those efforts through the APSIG experience, in order to organize an Indian Internet Governance Forum, that focuses on IG issues from the Indian perspective. I feel immense value in an event like that, with the advent of a digitally blossoming India. I have already spoken to numerous people in the IG domain in India about the need of such an event, and hopefully APSIG will further equip me in realising this dream. Finally, I am also keen on taking part in the global IGF 2018, when I have gained more experience in this domain. As someone who has very recently been introduced to Internet Governance. I am keen on participating in such global forums on IG, so that I can inspires my peers to do the same.||I do not have any ongoing project engagements directly related to Internet Governance, however, I currently work at a privacy and security research group in the Internet domain - http://precog.iiitd.edu.in/. My expertise is on studying privacy and security aspects of social media platforms, so in a way I contribute to the technical research on studying user behavior on these social platforms and how we can make them safer for the users. My recent project on identifying the effect of social feedback (likes and comments) on dangerous selfie-taking behavior was lauded by the Indian government and cited by press agencies around the globe. Specific to Internet Governance, I wish to motivate a project on introducing IG concepts in the local language for school and college curriculum in my city. I believe I can garner the support of the ISoC Delhi chapter in order to take this to the implementation phase.||I do not have any published articles in the Internet Governance domain, as I am still in the learning phase in this field. However, I do have a report written together with my peers during the online course on ‘Shaping our Digital Future’ that I participated in. Our report was on the analysis of the gender divide in the Indian Internet ecosystem. Working on this report gave me a lot of insights on the way the Internet users demographics was distributed in India, and the steps that can be taken by the state in balancing the gender divide.|
However, I do have two research publications in the domain of wireless and infrastructure-less network routing, from my undergraduate degree in computer science engineering. In a nutshell, these research papers were aimed at developing low cost and reliable routing protocols for networks deployed in rural areas and areas where laying infrastructure for internet connectivity is infeasible. We are currently in talks with the Delhi government for testing these protocols in nearby rural areas that are currently facing issues with Internet connectivity. These publications can be found on my website at - http://precog.iiitd.edu.in/people/divyansh/.

So, if civil society does not have a say in the multi stakeholder model and its bottom-up approach, part in showcasing their issues and ideas, right to initiate and negotiate policies and be part of final decisions made based on consensus, uplifting of common people around the globe is not possible. This is the basic reason that makes Internet governance important to me because I am the young representative of civil society. Civil society best knows and understands the public interest, it is expert in holding their government officials liable for setting out any policy and they are able to propose solutions to global needs and issues. It is thus critical for civil society to ensure their maximum participation on all IG related forums to make sure that their voices are enough and are heard so policymaking is in civil society best interest alongside strengthening a governance model fit for global lives today and tomorrow.||I had my first formal introduction to internet governance (IG) at Pakistan School of internet governance (PKSIG), 2017. During the school, presentations of the guest speakers and discussions among participants on the topics I had a little idea of amazed me. Based on discussions, I saw that IG is an umbrella encompassing range of topics of my interest including privacy, security, robustness and availability of internet for all alongside several other interesting topics such as net neutrality and zero-rating. I am a master’s degree student working on my thesis titled “Stochastic modeling and performance analysis of multi-tier heterogeneous networks” with an aim of shaping 5G communications for guaranteed connectivity, best possible data rates and secure delivery of confidential information, respecting end user’s privacy. During PKSIG, speakers held a mock meeting session, dividing us into multiple stakeholder groups and assigned the task of deciding the topic for next IGF meeting. At the end of this mock session, I knew I wanted to learn more and be there with global community. By attending APSIG, I want to broaden the exposure I got at PKSIG 2017. I want to use this opportunity to learn from the experts from round the world coming to this Asia Pacific School of Internet Governance, to participate in global internet ecosystem and come back with much better understanding of all the concepts introduced at PKSIG 2017 and work towards betterment of my local community in a more effective way. I want to be part of APSIG2018 to get detailed insights on the idea of internet for all, to contribute towards spreading awareness, to educate my people about the need of internet and its usage for uplifting of our nation, economically and socially.||Yes, I plan on been being more involved in Internet Governance activities in my region and globally.

Moreover, being part of APrIGF is my goal that I want to accomplish this year. I am working actively for betterment of my community i.e. internet access for education, child online protection program and parents education about children activity online, under the umbrella of ISocIbdPk. Moreover, I am an ambassador to Digital Grassroots Ambassadors Program under which I am engaging with my local community on raising awareness about Internet of Things, cyber security, limiting digital divide, importance and challenges associated with local content and importance of internet for economic uplift of our nation.||I am specifically engaged in the ISocIbdPk project of online child protection and digital education through internet. Reason for the specific interest and engagement in these projects is that as per the latest economic survey literacy rate of Pakistan is 58% whereas the internet penetration is the state is 75%. We as a nation need to educate our people about the right usage of internet; parents need to know about parental controls and monitoring tools while not limiting the younger kids’ access, freedom of expression and digital participation. Likewise, we need to empower our youth by guiding them about the power they have access to through which they can raise, promote and support causes best for their country and global interests, be the change bearer as faces of next generation and become part of civil society and may be the political life. This is the need of time while we work on internet provision at every nook of country and eventually our economic growth. |
I am an ambassador to Digital Grassroots Ambassadors Program under which I am engaging with my local community on raising awareness about Internet of Things, cyber security, limiting digital divide, importance and challenges associated with local content and importance of internet for economic uplift of our nation. Under this ambassadorship program, I will also be getting the mentorship by highly skilled mentors on Internet Governance to enhance my understanding of Internet Governance and actively participate on various forums presenting youth of my country.

Last September I have attended two courses called "Licensing in a Converged Environment" by Asia Pacific Telecommunity and "Competition Policy in the Digital Age" by GSMA. These two courses were organized by Communications Regulatory Commission of Mongolia in order to educate high level managers at IT companies in Mongolia about changing digital environments and how to adapt to those environments. That was when I got convinced that Internet Governance is important for everyone and we all have to active part of policy making process in order to ensure safer and more convenient internet environment. Personally, I work as the operations manager and I am also part of Management team at my company, thus better internet environment is the base for us to succeed in what we do.||Firstly, I want to participate in APSIG in order to advance my knowledge in Internet Governance and believe that this participation will help me to pursue my passion in research in the field of Internet Governance. Secondly, I am applying for APSIG because I want to share my knowledge and experience in Internet Governance in my home country - Mongolia with other scholars from different economies. Specially I am looking forward the case study session on "Gender and Natiolnal SIGs/IGFs" because this is the topic area that I tries to specialize in future research and have many cases to share with others and could contribute. |
Lastly by meeting and interacting with scholars from diverse background at APSIG , I can build up borderless friendship and professional network. At the same time, I will try my best to contribute strongly to the excellence and the diversity of APSIG.
|Firstly as I mentioned before I am planing to engage in research in Internet Governance thus I believe could actively participate all levels of IGF by presenting results of my research to various communities. Secondly I am passionate about bringing more women into IT sector, thus I will work to reach this goal by actively engaging in IGFs and making my voices heard and eventually call out other women in IT.||After attending APNIC 42 as a fellow, I have started developing interest in policy making part of Internet governance and have been independently researching about various topics on Internet Governance.

Until and unless people have full access to the internet, they cannot exercise the Freedom of Expression, Right to Information.

Internet governance is a broader umbrella that encompasses not only technology but also the ‘internet user perspective’ to make technology work for human development. I find that there is huge scope to bring in user perspective in internet usage and policy making; also, non-commercial community is currently under represented. Limited research evidence of user’s experience from global south is restraining policy development especially towards inclusion of marginalized populations. Being a development researcher these are the areas of interest I would like to pursue and hence I think learning internet governance is so much crucial to effectively participate in global and local policy making.||APSIG brings in leaders and practitioners from global south and provides a platform to learn, share and contribute to internet governance policy making. I want to get acquainted with the latest policy discussions in social inclusion, gender digital divide, affordable technological development / transfer and how to influence government responsiveness towards connecting the unconnected. Networking could be one of the biggest take-away from APSIG. APSIG also opens up opportunities for cross border collaborations and helps develop interdisciplinary perspective on internet development which will help towards mainstreaming marginalized youth. I want to learn if any interventions have been conducted globally on how effectively such non-connected communities can be connected, their skills and capacities can be built so that they can become important stakeholders. This is the strong motivation I have to participate in APSIG.||I was a fellow at first Indian school on internet governance (inSIG2016). I was selected in inSIG2017 also.

I want to take lead in conducting workshops on IG issues (mainly data protection and privacy) in schools and colleges especially in regions dominated by marginalized communities. I want to present fact sheets on internet access, adoption and usage among the marginalized community from India to the policy makers, academicians and practitioners of internet governance.

We have regular meetings and various events going on throughout the year from that platform. Since I have attended the first pkSIG, I have also been actively involved in the Internet Governance discussions within that group which helps regional community better understand Internet governance. I also closely follow the activities of our regional RIR APNIC & keep in touch regarding relevant topics with the acquaintances I have made in all these groups.||Pakistan||Technical Community||Yes, I agree.||Yes||Yes||No||Yes||Yes||No||No||As the impact of networked digital technologies continues to strengthen global socio-economic opportunities for all sectors of society, the importance of internet governance cannot be underestimated. Access to the internet in many developing countries is limited by basic infrastructure problems, I came to know about Internet Governance when I first attended the Cyber Secure Pakistan Conference, organized by my employer (NUST) in 2014 and I attended DNSSEC workshop jointly supported by APNIC, ICANN & ISOC. After that I joined Internet Society local chapter Islamabad and started attending their local monthly meeting. These meetings encouraged me to learn more about internet governance and multi-stakeholder approach by taking part in policy discussions during and after the meeting through emails and social media. Internet is the single most effective tool in human history. It allows billions of people to communicate with each other in a glimpse of an eye and a ubiquitous tool for communication anywhere on our planet. One Internet is better for everyone and multistakeholder model ensures that all voices are heard. Many of internet policies and important negotiations are not being held in a multistakeholder session, which impact the future of bottom up policy development. Also, Internet Governance is important to me because it relates to my education, work and my interests. As an emerging area of study, IG has a very important role in keeping the internet stable secure and resilient there by allowing different stakeholders from around the world to help contribute to the governance of the most important invention of modern times that has an impact on the socio economic trends world over.||With the growth in information technology there is a great need to spread the awareness about the internet governance process. APSIG is a great platform where I can learn about Internet governance issues and policies and to collaborate in creating a better understanding of Internet governance perspective of the Asia Pacific region. APSIG18 involves different sessions which include Internet governance introduction, history and principles, regulatory frameworks and net neutrality, multistakeholder model and stakeholders. These sessions will give me more awareness of Internet governance, collaborative issues, platform of knowledge sharing. I will be able to communicate what I have learnt, in my country and initiate discussions in relevant circles for its implementation. My learning will have far reaching impact by sharing my experience with local community to promote Internet Governance role and multistakeholder approach. It is not only important to participate in APSIG, but also in IG/SIG activities throughout the year.||Yes I do. Our national IGF is in the planning stage and I have plans to actively participate. For the regional and global one, I am also planning to participate and contribute in anyways I can.||I have been fortunate to work with ICANN team in DNSSEC workshop SANOG29, last year in HEC, Islamabad. I worked as a Technical Resource Person during DNS workshop with instructor Mr. Champika from ICANN during the workshop. I gained a lot of knowledge by working with an ICANN staff. I received a positive feedback from ICANN team and I hope to contribute to future IG capacity building and outreach activities in Pakistan as well as in the region. Other than that, I have attended USC Annenberg, Spring Institute on Internet Diplomacy and Governance, California, jointly organized by USC Annenberg and ICANN. During the institute I was a part of gold team and we worked and presented on “Engaging Government Officials in Latin America” on Internet Governance.||Currently I have no publications on Internet Governance, but in future I have planned to write on Internet Governance which is useful for our community and those who have limited access to internet to raise awareness and detect problems in adopting multistakeholder model.||Yes, I agree.||3||Yes||Full||No||3 Promising||2||2||3||4||6||14||20|

In Pakistan, as per the published statistics, broadband subscriber are only 25.5 percent. As in today’s world most of the economic and social growth is internet driven. It is really important to bridge the digital divide for economic and social development of the country. |
It seems that IG is just a phrase and nothing to do in daily lives, however it has big impact on issues like human rights, freedom of speech development and making internet available to everyone. As internet is borderless by nature, so if it is governed at national level or even by specific body at international level it may results in curbing freedom of speech and may be affecting overall economic development. It is therefore necessary to work on IG related issues and become the part of organizations at national international and regional level to shape internet for goodness of human beings.
|The world is rapidly embracing the digital age with innovation and creativity enabling and enhancing what we do and how we do. It is the need that together we develop the vision and future of information society. Platform like APSIG are important to understand and deliberate on different topics of internet governance. This will help not only in building capacity but also clearing the thought for further representation in broader forums for open and multi-stakeholder dialogues that will definitely help in shaping the future of internet. |
Pakistan has realized the infinite prospects of internet but there is still a serious lack of awareness and actionable plans. APSIG will disseminate expert’s take on the latest happenings in the internet development process that can shape my path towards participation in the internet community in Pakistan. I will engage with the experts at the academy to discuss the current internet landscape and seek their guidance on driving the internet forward in Pakistan.
|I am hopeful of developing good networking with the diverse range of attendants so that we may work on collaboration in the field of internet governance. I will be more active in the local ISOC chapter and help in raising more internet awareness in the country. I would definitely participating in IGF in national/regional or at global level ||My Journey with Internet Governance started in PKSIG 2016 which are organized by ICANN, APNIC and ISOC. Internet Governance always remain my interest topic, however attending PKSIG 2016 give me a new motivation and different perspective about the potential and opportunities of internet development. I later attended APSIG 2017 and APRIGF 2017 at Bangkok. |
I work with Internet Society on the join project with PTA for embracing accessibility for person with disabilities in Pakistan. We arranged multiple awareness raising workshops for mobile developers and students in various cities of Pakistan.

I also remain engaged on the project of ICT accessibility for women, i organised several training programs for android application development for women.

Most of my time growing up was spent on the Internet, which taught me more than I have learnt from most other sources. The Internet introduced me to RSS feeds, podcasts, IRC, MMORPGs, forums, among other various things, and I believe that this platform for free exchange of thought is a revolutionary tool for harnessing and sharpening our intellectual capabilities. Some of the most productive discussions I have had have been over the Internet. In this day and age, the Internet is taking shape of the most important medium of communication of the fourth pillar of democracy, the media. Governments may begin censoring expression with the right intent, but once the first step is taken, the juggernaut is hard to stop. I believe the Internet is one of the best tools to facilitate development since it can be used to increase economic growth, the literacy rates, make individuals employable, and a host of other things. Internet governance is important to me because I believe a resource as important as the Internet should be governed by rules that are just, fair and equitable, and it must be ensured that it is not regulated according to the whims and fancies of certain individuals, and we do not have rampant censorship, preferential treatment of content, and other misdeeds. Needs of all stakeholders must be considered and policy decisions, present and future, must be thought through well, and not knee-jerk reactions - implications of actions must be considered beforehand. I currently teach over hundred kids, help solve problems their communities face, and work extensively on empowering the communities they come from. I was selected as a Digital Grassroots Ambassador, and with the help of mentors, I will work towards making the Internet more accessible to people, and help the ones with access make efficient use of it, harnessing its true potential, and help those stakeholders get their voice to the government, since they comprise a large chunk of the stakeholders that lack representation.||Attending a course on Internet Governance, according to me, would be the best way to join the IG community and gain perspective and knowledge, enabling me to contribute meaningfully to discussions, advocate for consideration of the marginalised, and stand on firmer ground while have Internet-centred policy debates/discussions. I went through the catalogue of classes, and each of the lectures piques my interest, as they are centred around issues I have previously worked on (domain name issues in India, cyber security with India’s apex Internet body, cyber crime with the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell, Mumbai, and the blockchain and AI through a series of projects while in law-school.) I went through the previous iteration's lectures on YouTube, and they were extremely impressive. Long story short, I am interested in the areas of discussion, and believe attending the APSIG will be an enriching experience for me, and help make me a meaningful contributor to the IG community.||Yes, after having gained further insight which APSIG will provide, I plan to be a regular participant in Internet Governance events. As I am also engaged in the Digital Grassroots Ambassador program, I will undergo Internet Governance mentorship, and hope to apply to various IG opportunities such as ISOC’s Youth@IGF.||Interning with India's primary government department that works on Internet law and policy, which I have expanded in the following answer.

Countering fake news, together with violent extremism content, is an issue in internet governance, in particular is a matter of content policy.

For example, online job applications are only available to those who have access to the Internet, this closes the pool to those who cannot afford buying hardware or are ineligible for telecom contracts, but also technological developments - AI chips in arms are being tested in Scandinavia - how does this impact the future of young people and their right to privacy? or data protection? Learning, understanding and communicating these developments are incredibly important to me and is something I've decided to dedicate my volunteering time to. Secondly, my interest is also on an academic level - I'm interested in information warfare - particularly strategic narratives of global actors online (understanding the legal standing and other online elements which form and project particular narratives with the aim to influence) and violent extremisms, specifically online radicalisation. Understanding the relationship of nations or institutions with the media is such an important aspect of how we view the world and practice our understanding of democracy, this is why I have dedicated my academic studies to this.||Recently I participated in the Council of Europe Youth Participation on Internet Governance consultation and the IGF in Geneva and realised that my knowledge is in very particular and detailed fields. Although I have briefly engaged with issues related to cyber security, blockchain technology and AI, I now understand better that Internet Governance encompasses a wide interdisciplinary field and I seek to enlarge the scope of my understanding of the Internet beyond legal and communications aspects and bring all the different aspects together in a better understanding of how they interconnect and feel that APSIG would be a wonderful opportunity for me to start with. I also primarily worked in and with the European Union and now seek to have a better understanding of other Global Actors, which is why attending APSIG in Bangkok, Thailand would allow me to engage with practitioners abroad outside of the European Union, and further develop my thoughts and values to better understand how interculturally and internationally we can work together in Internet Governance.||At the global IGF, as member of the Steering Committee of the dynamic coalition "Youth Coalition on Internet Governance" we host a session, however the topic of the session is still to be determined as we only took office end December. I also hope this year to engage with NLIGF.||In 2016, I was the project leader of an international online campaign called Newsworthy.

The no of internet users in Nepal has increased rapidly in the last year. Nepal adds 2.25 million internet users in the last year. With reference to the NTA’s MIS 16.67 million Nepalese currently connect to the internet. This figure is actually 63 percent of the total population as per MIS of OCT 2017. This internet penetration index indicates the accessibility of internet to the people of Nepal. Last year Mangsir, the internet penetration was 54 percent. Mobile-based internet in Nepal is provided through platforms such as GPRS, EDGE, and WCDMA. Of the total mobile internet users, Nepal Telecom (NT) has the largest base of 8.66 million users, representing 54.91 percent of the market. Being the senior engineer of Nepal telecom i feel responsible towards the customer of my organization who use internet without knowing their rights and knowingly or unknowing they fall prey .Net Neutral, and Digital Divide, are the major factors that has increased the possibilities of problems like internet security, privacy, surveillance, pornography, confidentiality, copyrights, etc. which need further attention and research in my country.
