The highlights of the latest issue include:

  • The launch of the Geneva Internet Platform Digital Watch, developed in collaboration with the Internet Society. Are you following a particular issue(s) or process(es)? What are the latest updates? Who are the main actors and events? GIP Digital Watch provides a neutral one-stop shop for an overview of Internet-related issues, including actors, events and digital policy processes.

  • Many developments took place in September: from the US-China cyber arms deal, to the unanimous adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals; from rulings impacting the privacy of Internet users, to updates on the IANA transition.

  • In an interview with GIP Digital Watch, Swiss diplomat Markus Kummer shares his expectations on the future of IG, the outcomes of the WSIS+10 meeting, and the possible extension of the IGF mandate.

  • What happens when one takes all the transcripts from the IGF sessions and analyses them in a scientific way? Diplo’s team of analysts has uncovered meaningful patterns of data, that help us understand and interpret the archive of transcripts.

  • Test your knowledge on the responsibility of Internet intermediaries, with our fun crosswords.
