"Accountability of Internet governance organizations" 
ID: 348 — Farzaneh Badiei (ICANN) 
Private Internet  organizations or even international Internet fora usually do not function  in the shadow of law or invoking legal mechanisms against them is illusive.  How can we hold such Internet governance organizations that affect us with their policies and decisions accountable?  And why do we need to care about accountability of Internet governance organizations? 

"Lack of digital short feedback loops that lead to human right infringements in developing nations"
ID: 326 — Priyash Bista
Impact of communicating information to vulnerable populations in developing nations could mean the difference between life and death for some. The current model that allows organisations to operate in re-building or improving community situations ignore the need to convene critical information back to the affected community. This loss of realisation is an infringement on Article 22 of the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.
This session will focus on information distribution that have resulted in the positive effect of succinct information dissemination in Zambia, and also how it has prolonged the effects of disastrous diseases in Haiti. By doing so, this session will provide further evidence as to why communication needs to stay alive once the operating organisation disengages with the physical community.

ID: 696 — Olivia Martin
