A special Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme (IGCBP) for professionals from Oman starts on 10 September. The programme is run by DiploFoundation in cooperation with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Oman.
The programme includes three phases: a Foundation Phase, in which the participants will learn about the main issues, actors, and processes involved in Internet governance; an Advanced Phase, in which participants delve into specific topics of particular relevance to their work; and a Research Phase in which participants learn about policy research methodology and submit their own research proposal.
The first introductory phase starts on 10 September and runs for 8 weeks, followed by a two-month advanced phase which runs from December to February. The participants will complete the third phase of the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme (IGCBP) in April 2013.
