St Julian's, Malta

DiploFoundation will present the 9th edition of the intensive pan-Commonwealth training workshop: Legal Instruments for the Internet Economy, on behalf of the Government of Malta and in association with the Commonwealth Secretariat.

Legal and regulatory infrastructures are recognised as a crucial component and enabler in the Internet economy. A plethora of issues need to be addressed by both developing and developed countries, spanning areas such as: the commercial environment, data-protection and freedom of information, regulation of the telecommunications sector and competition law, and governance of the Internet with focus on cybercrime and cybersecurity. These issues will be addressed during the training workshop, to be held in Malta on 14-19 September 2015.

The workshop is intended primarily for government officials and professionals holding senior to middle management positions related to ICT/Telecoms Regulation from legal policy as well as operational departments.

Applicants from Commonwealth countries may apply for a scholarship, which covers the costs of the training course, accommodation, and a daily allowance, for the duration of the workshop. In order to qualify for a scholarship, applicants must be nominated by the employing department / ministry / organisation. The deadline to apply is 10 July 2015.

Candidates from non-Commonwealth countries or different professional backgrounds are also invited to apply – a limited number of positions will be available for self-funded applicants.
