Dear friends and colleagues,

I am looking forward to meet many of you at the IGF at Guadalajara in two
weeks. Together with my colleagues from Stanford we are organizing a
workshop to bring democratic practices and values in general and
deliberation in particular into the multistakeholder Internet Governance
world (2p to 5p on Dec 5). I strongly believe that peer-reviewed balanced
briefing materials and well conducted deliberation can significantly
improve informed governance and decision making in our field. Please see
invitation below for more details and rsvp here
<https://goo.gl/forms/e1W2iAgo3kzneFUw1>! We would love to discuss and
collaborate with you!

Kind regards,

Dear colleagues,

We are writing to invite you to our day 0 workshop at IGF2016 in
Mexico! Stanford’s Center for Deliberative Democracy (CDD) and the Center
for Democracy, Development and Rule of Law (CDDRL) are hosting a day 0
workshop to discuss bringing deliberation and deliberative democracy to
multistakeholder Internet governance. *The workshop at the IGF venue from
2p to 5p on Dec 5.  *

To ground the workshop in one of the current Internet Governance debates,
participants will engage in moderated small group deliberations on the
topic of governing digital encryption. Participants will engage in
knowledge sharing and weighing of tradeoffs based on balanced briefing
materials laying out policy options and their tradeoffs. Following this
hands on deliberative experience,  the workshop will open up the
 discussion to strategies, obstacles, and paths for how deliberative
democracy can be effectively used within multistakeholder governance in
general and on the topic of governing digital encryption in particular.
Participants in this workshop will depart with a deliberation toolkit which
participants can use to implement in their own communities.

If you are interested in joining our workshop, please rsvp here


Jim Fishkin, Eileen Donahoe, Max Senges
