Uber is facing more legal woes in the UK, amid reports of a data leak. Experts have convened to discuss lethal autonomous weapons, adopting several recommendations. New security vulnerabilities have been exploited, while Canada’s ruling on the global applicability of the right to be forgotten is blocked in the USA. What were the main Internet governance updates in November, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in December? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 28th November, 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 November 2017 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 28th November, 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.
