The push to tax Internet companies is intensifying, after a number of countries in the European Union proposed tax rules that would change the way the companies are taxed. As the race to become a leader in the artificial intelligence field picks up, concerns are escalating over the development of autonomous weapons. At the annual general debate of the UN General Assembly, cybersecurity and emerging technologies were among the digital policy topics in focus. What were the main Internet governance updates in September, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in October? Join us for our next monthly briefing, on Tuesday, 26th September, 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.

Every last Tuesday of the 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 September 2017 briefing takes place on Tuesday, 26th September, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST). Join us online, or in Geneva, or from any of the hubs; 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. To keep up-to-date with GIP events, subscribe to our mailing list. More information at gip@diplomacy.edu
