[Briefing] Internet governance in February 2015

27 February 2015 -

Online and WMO building, Geneva

Event description

February is an important month for Net Neutrality, as the FCC prepares to vote for new proposals. Cybersecurity is also at the forefront, as banks are once again a target for hackers, while new proposals for government and private sector cooperation unfold in the USA. What impact will these developments – any many others – have on the global digital policy process? What are the updates from the IG Barometer, and what can we expect in March? Join us on Friday, 27th February (date rescheduled), for a ‘zoomed-out’ update of the major global IG and digital policies developments.

[Update] We invite you to join us next month, online or in Geneva, for another Internet governance briefing; registrations are now open.

You receive hundreds of pieces of information on digital politics. We receive them, too. We decode, contextualise, and analyse them. Then we summarise them 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.
