Hi All,

Hi all,

My name is Chenai chair. Researcher and communications/evaluations advisor at Research ICT Africa. My organisation is a non profit think based in south africa, that seeks to provide evidence for effective policy making in Africa within the ICT space. I also work on the communicating research to ensure all stakeholders have know of our work and can work with us on different issues.

With regards to internet governance, i was part of the first gender and internet governance exchange programme in Africa in 2015. Since then i have been interested in the effectiveness of IG and the dynamics of participation. My interest in the latter led to the creation of the South African Emerging leaders on Internet Governance (ELIG). Together with my colleagues, (yolanda, gabriel and thato) we are hoping to get more young people to take part in policy processes!-https://www.facebook.com/ELIGSouthernAfrica/ <https://www.facebook.com/ELIGSouthernAfrica/> and http://www.sa-elig.org.za/# <http://www.sa-elig.org.za/#>
