WSIS PrepCom3, Tunis Phase
  19-30 September 2005, Geneva, Switzerland
 
 
  The third preparatory committee meeting for the second phase of the WSIS took place from 19 to 30 September 2005 at the UN Palace in Geneva, Switzerland. Because the governments could not agree, the PrepCom has held intersessional closed negotiations in October and has re-convened three days before the summit directly in Tunis.
