Advanced Diploma in Internet Governance

July 26

An interactive online capacity development programme

Internet governance (IG) has become one of the most important policy areas of our time.

To obtain the diploma, participants must meet programme requirements for three of the five courses on offer (Introduction to Internet Governance; E-Diplomacy; Internet Technology and Policy: Challenges and Solutions; CybersecurityArtificial Intelligence: Technology, Governance, and Policy Frameworks) within a three-year period.
