For substantive policy action to take place more thoughtful leadership from virtual roundtables like GISWatch is needed.

I would say that its highest value is in the global visibility it has and the facts that smaller, remote countries are reported and in this way become visible and part of the global conversations.

GISWatch is a unique experience, I think. Don´t know if there is a similar project in other fields. Having each year the possibility of tackling a particular issue of the field of rights and ICT, convoquing experts to analyse it from different perspectives and counting with about 50 countries in each edition, to get down that analysis to each particular territory is very valuable.
