Help us design the new IG building!

Colleagues, you may recall the IG building, which has served us well as an IG awareness- building tool over the last 10 years. It was sketched 10 years ago during one of the long WGIG meetings.

[Webinar] Evidence and measurement in IG: What sort of data and numbers are we talking about?

Although the Internet is an engineering artefact, we have very little data relevant for Internet Governance (IG). In cybersecurity, for example, we are still in doubt about the number of threats and the size of the losses incurred. The same applies in other IG fields. Without understanding the scope of the problem, it is difficult to discuss possible…
