Twenty research papers, written by alumni of the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme, have just been completed. The papers focus on various Internet governance issues, including child safety, social media, e-participation, data protection, electronic commerce, and e-health systems.
The authors started their research last year, after completing the Foundation and Advanced Phases of the Programme. They continued their research during the Research Implementation Phase (January-March 2011), during which they were guided by experts in the chosen area of research, and benefited from peer-to-peer discussions and reviews. The papers were finalised in the past few weeks.
A Book of Abstracts along with author biographies will be published and launched during the 6th Internet Governance Forum meeting in Nairobi. The full-text papers can be downloaded from the Research section, or by clicking here.
