Tour?’s ITU still pushing for an Internet counter-revolution by Milton Mueller

In his speech at the ICANN meeting in Cairo, the ITU’s Hamadoun Tour? “spoke openly of the ongoing ‘war’ between ICANN and the ITU writes Milton Mueller. Mueller notes Tour? demanded a stronger role for governments in ICANN, dismissed ICANN’s GAC as “cosmetic” (quite wrong says Mueller) and correctly accused the IGF of “avoiding issues” but also rather harshly dismissed it as a “waste of time.” Mueller commended “Tour? for his forthrightness, which is all too rare in international organizations. Unfortunately, his blunt speech supports the wrong cause.”
