IG Barometer of Trends

You receive hundreds of pieces of information on digital policy.
We receive them, too.
We decode, contextualise, and analyse them.
Then we summarise them for you.

The monthly Internet Governance (IG) Barometer of Trends tracks specific Internet governance issues in the public policy debate, and reveals focal trends by comparing the issues every month. The barometer determines the presence of specific IG issues in comparison to the previous month.

Currently, the barometer tracks the trends for the following issues: global IG architecture, sustainable development, security, e-commerce and Internet economy, digital rights, jurisdiction and legal issues, infrastructure, net neutrality, and new technologies (Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, etc.). In 2016, the barometer tracked trends for: global IG architecture, sustainable development, security, privacy and human rights, infrastructure, net neutrality, e-commerce and the Internet economy, jurisdiction and legal issues, and the IANA transition.

The barometer is published every last Tuesday of the month, and forms the basis of discussions during the monthly briefings on Internet governance. The GIP briefings provide a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global digital policies and IG developments. They are held on the last Tuesday of every month (at 12:00 UTC from November to February, and at 11:00 UTC from March to October). Learn more about the briefings, and join us online or from Geneva, or via one of the GIP hubs worldwide.
