Muzammil,

The Govt of the Netherlands convened a ministerial level meeting on Internet Freedom this past December. The meeting brought together like minded countries that are supporting net activism in some way.

Some countries are very public about their funding programs (USG, Sweden, Netherlands, EU),  others are far more discrete to protect the sensitivity of their programming.

I look forward to the summary you might be putting together.

regards

Robert
