Workshop on E-Diplomacy

13 December 2010 - 16 December 2010

Belgrade, Serbia; Podgorica, Montenegro

A two-day workshop on e-diplomacy was held on 13-14 December, 2010 in Belgrade, Serbia. In addition to diplomats, the workshop was attended by officials of the ministries of Telecommunication, Finance, Culture and Information, among others. The ‘abstract’ Internet governance issues (e.g. data protection, cybercrime, consumer protection, and telecom regulation) were translated into the language and priorities of various ministries. It was an interesting start to building a bridge between Internet governance and the EU’s Info policy. The workshop held in Podgorica, Montenegro on 15-16 December focused on handling Internet governance issues in the context of the EU accession process. This event was one of the three preparatory events for the upcoming EuroDIG meeting, to be held in Belgrade in May 2011, organised in cooperation with the Vienna Diplomatic Academy.
