Internet Technology and Policy: Challenges and Solutions

July 22
 – September 30

The critical Internet infrastructure is no longer a dry tech-geek topic.

It has drawn attention from the wider Internet community through discussions on Internet names and numbers (domain names such as .amazon, .wine), the Internet of Things (self-driving cars, drones affecting air traffic safety) and other current issues. DiploFoundation offers an interactive online course focusing on technology and core infrastructure issues in the context of public policy.

This course will be of interest to technical experts who are keen to learn more about digital policy; and to policy people who wish to learn more about Internet technology. The interplay between these two communities will add value to the course interaction.

Prominent Internet experts and leading policy makers will contribute to the review and development of course materials and/or join course discussions, including Avri Doria, Tracy Hackshaw, and Ian Peter.

This course can be taken as part of the Advanced Diploma in Internet Governance.
