[Briefing #45] Internet governance in May 2018

Geneva, Switzerland; and online

May was a much-anticipated month, as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect, triggering an eleventh hour rush to update privacy policies and to bring e-marketing practices in line. Beyond the GDPR, Facebook’s CEO testified before the European Parliament, drawing mixed reactions.

What were the main Internet governance updates in May, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in June? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 29th May, 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 May 2018 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 29th May, 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.
