Hi Folks,

IP Justice has co-organized a couple IGF 2014 panel sessions dealing with ICANN policy issues and on which a number of civil society members are participating (including Stephanie Perrin, Pranesh Prakash, David Cake, Rafik Dammak, Carlos Afonso, Avri Doria, Joy Liddicoat).  One of the panels is on ICANN accountability and the other session is about ICANN privacy issues (details below).

There will be remote participation available for these workshops, so I hope those who won't be in Istanbul for IGF will still consider dialing-in and joining the discussion via Rafik and David.  Should be some lively discussions!
