Do you want to follow global IG developments?
Are you lost in the sea of different initiatives: WSIS+10, IGF, ICANN, WTDC, NETmundial, GIPO, CSTD WGEC…!
Do you need to efficiently make sense of it all?
Geneva Briefings on Internet Governance decode, analyse, and summarise major global and regional IG processes for you.
Join us once a month for a round-up of the main IG-related events and developments. Every month, we look back at what happened and look ahead to what’s to come.
Our previous webinar provided an overview of January’s developments and an insight into February’s expectations.
The second webinar will take place on Tuesday, 4th March 2014, at 12.00 GMT (13.00 CET).
Registrations are now closed.
We will reflect on February’s IG warm-up, including:
