[Briefing] Internet governance in February 2019

26 February 2019 -


Event description

February was another busy month for new strategies and initiatives on digital policy: Governments are showing their intent to further crack down on the spread of hate speech, while the latest artificial intelligence strategies are an expression of ambition. Cyber-attacks continue to disrupt the operations of banks and government institutions, while the controversy around Huawei’s telecoms equipment also continues.

What were the main Internet governance updates in February? How will recent updates influence the developments in upcoming months? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 26th February, for a round-up of the major global IG and digital policy developments.



You receive hundreds of pieces of information on digital politics.
We receive them, too.

We decode, contextualise, and analyse them.
Then we summarise them for you.

Every last Tuesday of the month, the Internet governance briefings provide a ‘zoomed-out’ update of the major global IG and digital policy developments.

The Internet governance in February 2019 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 26th February, at 12:00 UTC (13:00 CET). Join us online; fill in the registration form  to reserve your place.

The monthly Internet governance briefings are organised by the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP), a Swiss initiative run by DiploFoundation. Learn more about our monthly briefings and local hubs. To keep up-to-date with GIP events, subscribe to our mailing list (link is external). More information at
