Many thanks for this Pierre et al
This type of debate was due for long in order to avoid the current tendency to pull Political politics into the governance of the Internet esp in Africa where neutrality from geopolitics may is needed most.
I think that it would add value if more actors from Africa were invited to the panel. Dont we think so...?
That is my observation at this stage since we need to do things better for Africa. Also, Knowledge and understanding of Internet policy issues need to be inderstood by policy makers in order for them to know the boundaries?
Thats all for now from me on this.
Thank you again..
