Online Training on Internet Governance for the MENA Region

24 June 2016 -


Event description

From data privacy and cybersecurity to content regulation and net neutrality, policymakers and advocates face complex challenges related to the Internet. What background knowledge is necessary to understand these complex topics? How can civic actors engage on these issues and effectively advocate for policies that benefit Internet users? What are the unique challenges and opportunities for civic actors in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA)? How can MENA develop more effective strategies for the Arab Internet Governance Forum?

Emerging leaders from civil society in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA) are invited to apply for the fourth annual online training on Internet governance, made possible by Hivos through the Internet Governance in the MENA Region IGMENA Programme. The course modules were developed and customised to the Middle East by IGMENA, and will be hosted and facilitated by DiploFoundation, the global leader of capacity development programmes on Internet governance. The tuition fees for successful applicants to the training programme will be covered by a fellowship from Hivos. The application deadline is 8 June 2016 for the eight-week course beginning on 24 June. For more information, visit the course page at Internet Governance in the MENA Region.
