This month was packed with new developments. The Cambridge Analytica’s scandal placed Facebook’s practices under intense scrutiny, raising questions on the responsibility of the Internet industry. The European Commission presented proposals for digital tax reform, while authorities in the USA are investigating a fatal accident involving a self-driving car, as new investment and milestones in artificial intelligence are recorded around the world. What were the main Internet governance updates in March? How will recent updates influence the developments in upcoming months? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 27th March, 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 March 2018 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 27th March, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST – please note change in UTC time). 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. More information at
