IRP Meeting – IGF 2009: Sharm el Sheikh
Internet Rights and Principles Dynamic Coalition Meeting

Internet Governance Forum, Sharm el Sheikh. 18th November 2009-12-17

The annual meeting of the Internet Rights and Principles (IRP) Dynamic Coalition was held at the 4th Internet Governance Forum in Sharm el Sheikh. Owing to organisational and scheduling issues in the wider Forum, the meeting was rescheduled to the early morning on a day when Forum participants had difficulty clearing security to get into the venue. A number of participants therefore did not make it to the meeting or arrived late. However, despite these issues, the meeting was still relatively well-attended and productive.

The meeting took the form of an informal and open discussion amongst participants. After a short presentation of the history of the coalition and projects undertaken over the course of the year, the discussion focused on the coalition’s work to build a Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet.
