You are invited on Monday, 28 September 2015, to join the launch of the “GIP Digital Watch“, an online observatory of digital policies. This new site will provide new resources designed to help people understand the critical Internet policy and governance issues we face today.


UPDATE – 28 September: Please see this post from Sally Wentworth for more information about the launch.


“Navigating through the Complex Field of Digital Politics”

GIP Digital Watch Launch

Monday 28 September
13:15 – 14.15 CET (UTC+2)
WMO building, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix, Geneva

This initiative is led by the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP), in partnership with DiploFoundation, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Federal Office for Communications of Switzerland, and the Internet Society.

It is part of the Internet Society’s core mission to strengthen the Internet governance ecosystem by enabling stakeholders to be fully part of discussions that may affect them. In the Internet Governance survey we conducted last spring, our community indicated that key priorities are to make Internet governance easier to understand, and to develop and share best practices amongst countries and communities.

The Digital Watch will provide a neutral resource for policy leaders and other actors to make better informed decisions and to navigate through the complex field of digital politics. It aims to complement other platforms by accumulating, organizing and presenting existing policy materials that stakeholders can refer to and rely on.

It is based on a grassroots, bottom-up approach where a network of curators, including the involvement of Internet Society chapters and members, will ensure a diversity of sources, especially at the local and regional level.

Please join us on 28 September for the official launch of the Digital Watch website!

[Note: Registration to attend the launch event in person is now closed. However, everyone is available to watch the launch event remotely. Please register to watch the session online.]
