Event description

In October 2012, 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 Diplo. The meeting discussed policy developments within ICANN and IANA, the EU Commission, ENISA, the IGF, and 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.
