[Briefing] Internet governance in October 2017

31 October 2017 -

Geneva and online

Event description

This month, artificial intelligence developments have continued at a fast pace, as legal and ethical issues come into focus. Courts are faced with new questions related to jurisdiction and privacy issues, while e-commerce discussions related to the upcoming WTO Ministerial Conference are intensifying. What were the main Internet governance updates in October, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in November? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 31st October, 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 October 2017 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 31st October, 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.
