Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme

The Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme is based on a collaborative approach to online learning: intensive discussion and interaction among participants and tutors enhances the individual learning experience. The discussion is organised around five conceptual baskets: Infrastructure and Standardisation, Legal, Development, Economic and Socio-Cultural. The training programme consists of learning and research phases, each lasting for three months. An important component of the programme is a series of fellowships and capacity building packages aimed at providing participants with practical experience in dealing with Internet Governance issues.
