Goodbye Part I, Hello Part II. An interview in Terra Viva with the Tunisian Foreign Minister Habib Ben Yahia gives a flavour of the sparring we can expect between the WSIS 2005 hosts and critics of that government's record on press freedom. Ben Yahia's boss, State President Ben Ali, indicated one Tunisian tactic for deflecting criticism when in a keynote speech at Geneva he emphasized the need for a bigger role for both civil society and the private sector.

Meanwhile, to recapture WSIS Part I in pictures and to get a feel for the 'alternative space' occupied by non-official civil society, check out OneWorld TV's homepage
