[Briefing] Internet governance in April 2017


What were the main Internet governance updates in April, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in May? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 25 April, for a round-up of the major global IG and digital policy developments.

You receive hundreds of pieces of information on digital politics.
We receive them, too.

We decode, contextualise, and analyse them.
Then we summarise them for you.

Every last Tuesday of the month, the Internet governance briefings provide a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global IG and digital policy developments. They are delivered live from Geneva (WMO Building, 2nd floor, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix), and broadcast online.

The Internet governance in April 2017 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 25 April, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST). Join us online, or in Geneva, or from any of the hubs; fill in the registration form to reserve your place.
