Microsoft's proposal for a Digital Geneva Convention initiated discussion among the IG community on the future of digital governance, in particular in the security field. Fake news continued to proliferate, raising more concern. What other developments took place in February, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in March? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 28th February, for a round-up of the major global IG and digital policy developments.

We receive them, too.
We decode, contextualise, and analyse them.
