[EURO-Discuss] Lisbon Follow Up

I think it is up to the community. From what I know of these two
events, it would seem to me that these are two important and very
different aspects to consider and it is worthwhile to consider them
separately because each set of issues will then get more time, and
therefore be explored more thoroughly, than if they shared a single
timeslot. Of course, nothing would stop the two constituencies jointly
convening one or the other of these events, which would provide the
'one voice' benefits you mention.
Jacqueline, do you have any thoughts?

> Robin Gross from IP Justice, who is also with the Non-Commercial User Constituency of the GNSO told me here in geneva during the IGF consultations that she is preparing a similar workshop on Freedom of Expression in San Juan (probably on Wednesday, June, 27, 2007.
> What do you think, should we consider to do the two workshops under one unbrella as a joint activitiy of ALAC and NCUC? The two workshops are totally independent but complement each other. Each unit would be responsible for its own workshop but coulkd benefit from the joint advertisement. Thisn could lead to a win-win-situation. And we would give the ICANN constituency as a whole a clear signal, that th voice of the users/consumers/at large members gets louder.
