[Briefing #44] Internet governance in April 2018

Geneva, Switzerland; and online

The scrutiny of tech companies continued to intensify this month after Facebook's CEO faced questions in congressional hearings. In Europe, Facebook is expected to face similar pressure. While the debate over the Cambridge Analytica continued, tech companies signed the Cybesecurity Tech Accord pledging to fight cyberattacks. What other updates took place in April, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in May? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 24th April, for a round-up of the major global IG and digital policy developments.

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

On the last Tuesday of every month, the Internet governance briefings provide a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global IG and digital policy developments. They are delivered live from Geneva (WMO Building, 2nd floor, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix), and broadcast online.

The Internet governance in April 2018 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 24th April, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST). Join us online, or in Geneva; fill in the registration form to reserve your place.

The monthly Internet governance briefings are organised by the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP), a Swiss initiative run by DiploFoundation. Learn more about our monthly briefings and local hubs.
