Hi Everyone,

Further to my self-nomination of a few days back: Another day, another 
Appeals team Nom statement from a Jeremy:

- begin statement

I work at the Media at mcgill research centre and am completing a PhD at 
the Université of Montréal.  My research focuses on both Internet 
Governance issues and the role of Civil Society in Global Governance. I 
have been involved with the IGC since 2003 and hav tried earn my keep by 
taking on roles that help facilitate its day-to-day activities and its 
continued sustainable organizational development. At the same time, I 
have not been a particularly active player in the debates over its 
substantive policy positions- something that I think is important for 
the appeals team. I have a professional background working in online 
policy consultation in both Canada and the UK and would sit on the 
appeals team with an unambiguous mandate that the interests of the IGC 
come before any specific individual or policy agenda as well as a clear 
idea about the role played in establishing these interests by 
consultation and dialogue amongst the community.

Region: North America
Profession: Academic
Membership affiliation in IGC: As individual
Working Languages: English/ French

Thanks Izumi, Nom Com and everyone else who took the time to prepare and 
read statements,


Jeremy Shtern
