Internet Governance Diplomats in Nairobi

Internet Governance Diplomats in Nairobi

NAIROBI, Kenya (Diplo) - This 30-storey building is the Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi, where the forthcoming ICANN meeting n. 37 will be held from 7 to 12 March 2010.

ICANN meetings are very important for the global Internet, bringing together participants from all over the world to promote competition, develop policy and keep the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. Because of that, DiploFoundation, in cooperation with ICANN, will provide a workshop on Internet governance and ICT policies.

Internet governance is a multidisciplinary field. This means that the two-day workshop "Internet Governance Diplomats" will address technical, legal, economic, socio-cultural and developmental aspects, explaining links to the international and regional Internet governance process, from the World Summit on the Information Society to the Internet Governance Forum.

This is the first event in a series of activities in the Capacity Development in ICT Policy and Internet Governance for Africa - Caribbean - Pacific (ACP) Programme of DiploFoundation, with support of the European Commission and Secretariat of the ACP Group of States. All participants from the ACP Group of States who are attending the ICANN meeting are invited to register.

To register, please send an email with your full name, country of residence, institution and position to acpinfo@diplomacy.edu - registrations are limited to 30 participants on a first-come basis. Deadline: 5 March 2010.
