Moreover , Germany on Thursday passed a controversial new law that expands the power of authorities to spy on the content of encrypted message services such as WhatsApp and Skype while Facebook is launching a UK initiative to train and fund local organisations to combat extremism and hate speech. In the United Kingdom, "The Queen's Speech featured several references for the tech industry to chew over, including promises of a new UK data protection law and digital charter".

On Cyberpolitics-geopolitics, China has told three major web portals to shut down their video and audio streaming services, saying "they carry politically-related material that breaks state rules and social commentary which incites negative opinions". Also, "Chinese scientists have set a new distance record for quantum entanglement, raising hopes of building an entirely new kind of hacker-resistant "quantum internet.” Russia's media watchdog blocked internet giant Google for several hours on Thursday in a bid to enforce a tax ruling made in 2016.

Cette semaine, l'extrémisme en ligne et la protection des données font de nombreux manchettes de la gouvernance sur Internet. En effet, les leaders de l'Union européenne, lors d'un sommet à Bruxelles, ont accentué la pression sur les géants américains comme Facebook et Twitter pour freiner la propagande en ligne après les attaques terroristes en Grande-Bretagne, en France et en Belgique. En outre, l'Allemagne a adopté jeudi une nouvelle loi controversée qui élargit le pouvoir des autorités d'espionner le contenu des services de messagerie chiffrés tels que WhatsApp et Skype alors que Facebook lance une initiative au Royaume-Uni pour former et financer des organisations locales pour combattre l'extrémisme et le discours de haine. Au Royaume-Uni, The Queen's Speech a présenté plusieurs références pour l'industrie Tech, y compris les promesses d'une nouvelle loi britannique sur la protection des données et la charte numérique".
Sur la cyberpolitique et la géopolitique, la Chine demande à trois grands portails Web de fermer leurs services de diffusion audio et vidéo, disant qu'ils portent des éléments engagés politiquement qui bouleversent les règles de l'État et des commentaires sociaux qui incitent à des opinions négatives». "LaRussie a bloqué le géant Internet Google depuis plusieurs heures jeudi dans le but de faire respecter la décision fiscale rendue en 2016.
En ce qui concerne l'événement, notre notons Forum sur la gouvernance de l'Internet notre Asie centrale  et la prochaine réunion publique de l'ICANN.
