‘Emerging Language of Internet Diplomacy’ features in LAC project

01 May 2013

Event description

As part of the ’25 years of the information society in LAC 2000-2005 project of Fundación Comunica’ with the support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Dafne Sabanes Plou wrote an excellent update on the situation of women, ‘Women in the Information Society: Participating in development and ICT policy’. Plou summarises the journey from the effort to simply achieve a mention of gender issues in early WSIS documents, to the presence, and finally participation of women in IS and Internet governance processes. A reference to DiploFoundation’s study on ‘Emerging Language of Internet Diplomacy‘ points out the increase in participation and in interventions (e.g. number of words spoken by gender).
