I believe that one of the most important aspects of short capacity building courses is to give us insights and to stimulate our curiosity to develop further reseraches on the topics that interest us the most.

This report is the result of my… Continue

We have studied remote participation initiatives put forth in other meetings and we decided to propose the creation of local IGF hubs. After negotiations, and… Continue
