Event Description

The role of governments in Internet governance is under wider scrutiny this month. Debates during the ITU's World Telecommunications Policy Forum (WTPF) in Geneva, legal developments from the US House of Representatives, and the tumultuous developments at ICANN and its Government Advisory Committee (GAC), have cast a spotlight on governments' role and the multistakeholder model.

Our May webinar will focus on the role of governments and the way this role is changing. Our special host is well-known IG expert Dr Jeremy Malcolm, senior policy officer at Consumers International. He will discuss the following, and more:

- What are the updates from Geneva, the US, and Beijing?
- How do these developments affect the positioning of governments in the IG process?
- What can we expect to see in the coming months?

Join us next Tuesday, 28th May, at 13:00 GMT, for this interactive webinar. Participants will be able to ask topic-related questions during the webinar. Participation is free; registration is required. Please register at http://www.diplomacy.edu/registrations/webinar-role-governments-ig
