Briefings

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

The monthly Geneva Internet Platform briefings provide a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global digital policies and Internet governance (IG) developments. They are organised by the Geneva Internet Platform (operated by DiploFoundation) as part of the GIP Digital Watch initiative. The briefings complement the GIP Digital Watch observatory and the monthly Geneva Digital Watch newsletter.

Typical schedule

12.00 – 12.20 Global perspective: main digital policy developments delivered by our Internet governance experts.
12.20 – 12.40 Questions and comments. 
12.40 – 13.00 Regional perspectives: round-up from GIP hubs worldwide.

Online participation

Join the monthly briefings online. Participation is free but registration is required. The webinar link is sent by e-mail a few hours before the start.
