2008
IT for Change was at the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Ministerial Meeting on 'The Future of the Internet Economy', an event held in June 2008 in Seoul (Korea). Parminder Jeet Singh was a panelist on the Civil Society - Organised Labour Forum on a policy round-table titled 'The future of the Internet: The human and political dimension', where he spoke about the democratic deficit in global Internet policy making. He also submitted a paper which had been written as a contribution for the Athens Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in 2006 and had been recontextualised for the OECD Ministerial Meeting. This paper discusses the need for a 'development agenda' in Internet governance and comments on issues of democracy and participation in global Internet policy making fora such as the OECD Ministerial meeting and IGF.
