Briefings on Internet governance and digital policy

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 Geneva Internet Platform briefings provide a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global digital policies and Internet governance (IG) developments. The briefings 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). Join the monthly briefings online or from Geneva, or join one of the GIP hubs worldwide. 


[Update] The digest and recording of the [Briefing] Internet governance in February 2020 are now available.

GIP hubs

GIP hubs

You can follow the monthly briefings by joining one of the GIP hubs worldwide. If the closest hub is too far for you, we encourage you to establish a GIP hub in your local community to enable you to follow the global digital developments and to have sustainable discussions with others from your local community. The GIP can provide organisational and promotional support. If you are interested in establishing a local hub, let us know.
