This month, particular focus is on the Internet and sustainable development goals, with the UN Summit adopting the post-2015 development agenda at the end of September. How can the goals become a reality in an increasingly digitised world?

Other important developments are also taking place: will the USA and China strike a cyber arms deal? Following the opinion of the Advocate General to the European Court of Justice, could European data protection authorities suspend data transfers to third countries, particularly the USA? Will search engines need to apply the right to be forgotten globally, following the decision by the French data regulator?

Join us for our next briefing, on Tuesday, 29th September for a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global IG and digital policies developments. Every month, we look back at what happened and look ahead to what’s to come. Read the digest from last month's briefing: Internet governance developments in July and August.

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.

The Internet governance in September 2015 briefing will take place on Tuesday, 29th September, at 13:00 CEST (11:00 UTC). The briefing is delivered live from Geneva (WMO Building, 2nd floor, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix) but you can also participate online. To join, please fill in the registration form.
