Thanks everyone who responded so far - I was interested to learn that we 
do have some reasonable examples of government co-operating with civil 
society and private sector in policy development: at a national level- 
and to learn that cgi.br is still alive.

We can debate forever what terms like "multistakeholderism", "enhanced 
co-operation", "respective roles" and "equal footing" mean, but I remain 
convinced that the only path to effective cooperation on the complex 
policy issues we face with the evolving internet will  be all parties 
working co-operatively on policy evolution - both within national 
borders, and also across these borders on a global basis.

I should mention that my questions were prompted by attending 
Australia's Netthing event (https://netthing.org.au/). My impression 
after that was that the government here wanted to be seen to be 
co-operating with other stakeholders, but either was doing this in a 
tokenistic fashion or wasn't quite sure how to go about it. So some good 
examples from elsewhere might be very useful!
