The Geneva Internet Platform will offer a course aimed to assist permanent missions in Geneva in actively following the increasingly relevant field of digital politics. The course will be delivered by DiploFoundation, from 23 January to 26 March 2017.
The course will benefit diplomats who follow Internet governance (IG) and other Internet-related policy fields (e.g. telecommunications, human rights, cybersecurity, trade). While improving their knowledge of digital politics, participants will also gain the practical skills and knowledge required to follow current IG processes such as the global IG architecture, privacy and data protection, and cybersecurity. The course focuses in particular on diplomatic and policy processes in International Geneva.
