Coming up: webinar discussion on Internet governance in February

February has been a busy month for digital policy, with yet again many developments unfolding.

We've seen negotiations between the EU and USA on a post-Safe Habour agreements inching closer to a deal with the newly announced 'EU-US privacy shield'; zero-rating services being blocked in India; an encryption/privacy battle between Apple and FBI; and more encryption debates in the UK, to mention just a few. These developments will undoubtedly shape future updates, and are also expected to have an impact on developments in other parts of the world.

The Geneva Internet Platform and DiploFoundation will round up the main developments in the monthly webinar, Internet governance in February 2016, tomorrow Tuesday, 23 February, at 12:00 UTC.

The Rio hub, moderated by IG expert Marilia Maciel from the Center for Technology and Society of the Getulio Vargas Foundation School of Law, will join in again this month. For the first time, the newly formed Jakarta hub will also join. It will be hosted by HE Mr Rudiantara, Minister for Information and Communication Technology of the Republic of Indonesia.

There are many ways to join:

If you're in Geneva, join the live discussion at WMO Building, 2nd floor, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix, from where the briefing will be broadcast.
