Workshop on Internet Governance

12 November 2010 - 13 November 2010

Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago

The workshop was organised on 12-13 November in collaboration with the
Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU). Over 20 participants representing
government, civil society, business, academia, and international and
regional organisations took part. Workshop guest speakers helped make the
discussions more relevant to the region and for the participants. Sheba
Mohammid, from ISOC Trinidad, talked about ICT policy in the Caribbean and
the regional challenges; Shernon Osepa, ICANN regional manager, talked
about the IPv4 – IPv6 transition, and related regional aspects; Tracy
Hackshaw, from ISOC Trinidad, tackled a regional case study on Trinidad’s
ICT strategy, while Rodney Taylor, CTU Business Development Manager, also
talked about ICT policy in the Caribbean region.

Participants praised the interactivity of the workshop, which was made
possible through simulations and negotiation exercises. The two-day
workshop was also broadcast on Twitter.
