I'm concerned about the fact that Kenya is next to host the IGF, and that the panelist was a representative from the Kenyan government. That isnt to say that he represents all the views, but I am worried that this may be the norm in that space. Well, at least it means we're prepared for it<br />That's not the publication, although it's pretty cool - going to check it out. The doc I was talking about was a 2 page flyer that was circulated at the IGF. Will try and find it online at some point

"the youth were good for nothing” is really shocking statement, especially by someone speaking as the panellists at session on social exclusion and the internet. I agree it is not only important to unpack what is mean by 'youth' but also reassess their role in internet governance, not only since they are 'early adopters of new technologies'. As stated in the statement of youth dynamic coalition: "sessions discuss youth issues solely from adult points of view; instead of youth discussing the future of the Internet as equal stakeholders..." (http://www.ycig.org/index.php/2010/09/statement-of-the-dynamic-youth-coa...)<br /> By the way, is this http://www.youngfoundation.org/publications/reports/plugged-untapped-usi... a publication on youths and internet governance your are mentioning in the last para?
