April brought the start of a busy spring and a move toward a hot summer. The April briefing in Geneva and online emphasized a zoom-out view, giving a broader picture with interplay between different thematic areas. The recording of the webinar is now available.
The IG Barometer for April showed that the past few weeks were more intensive for cybersecurity, global IG architecture, online privacy and data protection, and e-commerce, compared to March; while IANA transition, ICANN and new domains, and net neutrality stayed on...
How to improve inclusion in the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) process through online resources, tools, and facilitation was one of the points of discussion at the IGF 2015 Open Consultations and Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) meetings in Geneva during the week of 2 December.

For the following analysis, we selected 31 IG-specific words and phrases. We extracted their frequency distributions across 91 IGF sessions, and then computed the distances between them[i] in order to be able to represent them spatially. The initial spatial representation is high-dimensional and thus not of much use for the human visual system. We then applied a dimensionality-reduction technique[ii] to represent these words and phrases in 2D and 3D spaces (a 2D space is...
The four days of the 9th Annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF), held in Istanbul, Turkey, 2‒5 September 2014, coincided with interesting developments in Diplo's methodological approach to Internet governance (IG). The IGF provided us with the opportunity to study the statistical properties of the emerging language of Internet Diplomacy as it unfolded before us in numerous workshops and sessions. Our experiments and exercises were conducted in the scope of the development of Diplo Text-Analytics Framework (DTAF). This analytical framework utilises...
