Advanced Diploma in Internet Governance
An interactive online capacity development programme
Internet governance (IG) has become one of the most important policy areas of our time. Topics like privacy protection, human rights online, and cybersecurity are increasingly in the focus of global policy making. How we manage the Internet will define much of our society. Yet the growing relevance of the Internet is not yet supported by effective and inclusive IG.

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; Cybersecurity; Artificial Intelligence: Technology, Governance, and Policy Frameworks) within a three-year period.
