Diplo's Internet governance webinars have become a monthly appointment. Every last Tuesday of the month, a special host takes the floor to discuss one of the most pressing IG topics of the month. After the webinar, podcasts and digests allow those who could not attend the webinar to listen to the discussion and read about the main issues that were discussed.
