+1 good choice

2014-08-19 13:22 GMT-05:00 Jeremy Malcolm <jmalcolm at eff.org<mailto:jmalcolm at eff.org>>:
The IGF Secretariat is seeking a couple of names for a civil society
closing speaker.  Some people may have received Subi Chaturvedi's mail
about this, but due to a mailing list misconfiguration, now fixed, some
may not have. (The misconfiguration also means we are missing a couple+1
of months of archived messages.)

To make sure that all constituencies have input into this choice, the
civil society coordination group is proposing to forward the names, and
our task is to come up with some suggestions from within the Best Bits
community to feed into that process.

I would like to get the ball rolling by suggesting the name of Dr Burcu
Kilic, who works for Public Citizen mainly on trade and access to
medicines issues.  She is Turkish so she has a good perspective on the
political situation there.  I have worked with her for several years on
the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and have admired her diplomacy,
her scholarship and her development orientation.  I have checked with
her, and she would be willing to serve if nominated.

Please follow up with other names, or with your support for names
already expressed.
