Trip Assessment Form

1) Describe how the original Purpose and Goals were accomplished:


Participation of Russian representative was important in order to share Russian experience and opinion about current changes in Internet Governance. There were examples of Russian Internet governance policy described from the academic prospective and they were discussed with different representative from ISOC, ICANN and others. It was important to discuss multistakekolder approach and its implementation in Russia.


The purpose and goals were to get in touch with the European Internet Governence community. I'm happy to have taken part at interesting sessions, especially the one regarding security.
For me it was an unique experience, because being a techy was not so mainstream (as in other events I've been part of). I was able to get in touch with what I would call a new world and a fresh set of ideas on things such as security, privacy, Internet rights.


The purpose to take an active part in the 8th edition of the Pan-European dialogue on Internet governance (EuroDIG) was accomplished at best. Representing the ISOC Armenia ALS in ICANN, my participation was very important as Armenia is a full member of the Council of Europe since January 2001.

I was actively engaged in EuroDIG schedule. Particularly, among the other members, I was a focal point of the Workshop called "Should I click for Internet governance? Where?"


The session was aimed at:

  • discussing the connection between Internet access, empowerment and active participation in a digital society and in Internet governance processes;
  • identify motivations, prerequisites, challenges and barriers when it comes to meaningful participation;
  • develop key messages encapsulating possible ways forward in terms of moving from simple access to active and meaningful participation.

The format of the workshop was World café. The key facilitator was Olivier Crépin-Leblond, ISOC England, United Kingdom.

The report of the workshop highlights the points:

  1. Stakeholders need to be empowered to participate, through awareness raising, education, capacity building and allocating financial resources.
  2. Internet governance processes have to ensure equality among stakeholders, so that all voices are acknowledged.
  3. Use SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely) methodologies to catalyze Internet governance from all stakeholders, especially end users. See the results and have an impact.
  4. Improve remote participation and make it part of the DNA of Internet governance, by giving it more time in face-to-face interactions.

Besides, I was a remote moderator for the session "How can the open Internet coexist with new IP services?" with moderation of Frédéric Donck, ISOC Europe.

In addition, I was a member of an Org team and a panelist in the session "Internationalised Domain Names" representing the case of Armenian IDN.

2) Describe how the original Outcomes were achieved:



a) Sharing of the best practices of ALSes from Eastern Europe and South-Eastern Europe - in a number of emerging areas, among which:

- Open Government related initiatives and citizen engagement in decision-making processes, and the role Internet plays in openness, transparency and social accountability,Governance surveillance and Open Government initiatives, etc.

- Inclusion of people with disabilities and vulnerable people in general

- Media education

b) Engaging in constructive dialogues around Internet Governance related policy frameworks in EU, and ways this is affecting non-EU member countries (how should national policies on IG be shaped, etc.).

c) Increasing the number of persons in At-Large to the ICANN Dublin meeting, by raising awareness of ICANN.

First expected outcomes were achieved during the workshop participation as a speaker and as on-site participant (workshop on Sharing experience in entrepreneurship and influence of regulations on business), (session on modern media on the Internet). There was also discussion about media literacy and modern educational principles which should include critical thinking. Second group of outcomes were achieved during non-formal and formal discussions about new regulations introduced in Russia about personal data protection and policy focused on blocking sites...

Mr. Deaconescu 

I've met with a lot of people, had a chance to also talk to other Romanian participants that I didn't meet before. I grasped some initial information regarding the decision making process in the European Internet Governence community and the entities involved in it: countries, institutions, NGOs.


The expected outcome for sharing of the best practices of ALSes from Eastern Europe and South-Eastern Europe was achieved by participation to workshops and informal discussions with EuroDIG participants. Particularly, the experience of establishing the Armenian Multi-stakeholder Internet Governance Council (IGC) was shared and presented to representatives of different stakeholders from Eastern Europe and South-Eastern Europe.

 As a direct outcome of my participation to EuroDIG 2015, the implementation of open, transparent and inclusive process of organizing IGF was replicated to the first Armenian IGF (ArmIGF). Being a member of the Org Committee for ArmIGF 2015, I pursued the bottom-up and multistakeholder principle as the base for Armenian IGF.

4) Additional information pertaining to this outreach event (optional):


Prior to EuroDIG, a sub-regional IGF initiative SEEDIG (South Eastern European Dialogue on Internet Governance) was organized. SEEDIG has been launched by and for stakeholders in South Eastern Europe and the neighboring area, as a space where they can gather and discuss, in an informal and open manner, about current and emerging Internet-related issues that are relevant for the region and SEEDIG was launched in a bottom-up manner. The preparatory process was open and transparent. I volunteered for the preparatory works and was included among the members of SEEDIG Executive Committee.

SEEDIG 2015 took place on 3 June 2015, in Sofia, Bulgaria. It was aimed to be both a capacity building event, as well as a space for discussions on Internet governance issues that are particularly relevant for the region. SEEDIG was held as a full day event, with a programme structured into four distinct sessions:

  • Introduction to Internet governance What is Internet governance and why should I care?
  • Multistakeholder Internet governance mechanisms/approaches at national level
  • Human rights for Internet users: theoretical approaches vs. realities in the region
  • The domain name space in South Eastern Europe – the case of IDNs

For the last session I participated as a panelist representing the case of Armenian IDN.

SEEDIG 2015 was attended by around 150 on-site participants, coming from 38 countries, both from within South Eastern Europe and the neighbouring area (73%) and from outside the region (27%). Some of the countries that were represented at SEEDIG, and that could be considered as part of South Eastern Europe and the neighbouring area, are: Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Greece, Kosovo , Moldova, Serbia, Slovenia, Romania, Russia, Ukraine. All stakeholder groups were represented at the meeting and In terms of gender representation, 52% of all participants were male, and 48% female.
