Event description

[Update] The digest and recording of the webinar is now available.


This month, tech giants faced considerable backlash over data leaks, privacy and security issues, and their dominant position. Meanwhile, some EU member states have revived discussions on taxing the Internet economy.

What were the main Internet governance updates in October? How will recent updates influence the developments in upcoming months? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 30th 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 2018 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 30th October, 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. More information at
