04 October 2012 -


Event description

Diplo presented its initiative for national and regional capacity building programmes in Internet governance at the 48th General Assembly of CENTR.

The 48th General Assembly of CENTR – the association of Internet Country Code Top Level Domain Registries – gathered representatives from the majority of European ccTLD Registries, as well as from other partner institutions such as VeriSign, ICANN, Afilias, the European Commission, and DiploFoundation. The meeting discussed policy developments within ICANN and IANA, the EU Commission, ENISA, the UN's IGF, and ITU's WCIT.

Building on the needs of public authorities and other stakeholders across Europe to better understand the Internet and DNS working principles, cross-border issues, and policy ecosystem, Diplo presented its successful capacity development methodology and suggested a partnership for launching national and regional IG Capacity Building Programmes (PDF).
