Internet companies are under increasing pressure to remove illegal content swiftly, as new laws come into force. Discussions on taxation for the Internet economy come into focus again, as tax avoidance schemes are revealed. In Davos, world leaders and businesses raised concern about emerging technologies, cybersecurity, and the monopoly of giant Internet companies. What were the main Internet governance updates in January, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in February? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 30th January, 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. They are delivered live from Geneva (WMO Building, 2nd floor, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix), and broadcast online.

The Internet governance in January 2018 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 30 January, at 12:00 UTC (13:00 CET). Join us online, or in Geneva; 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.
