Other regional Summer Schools

The International Schools on Internet Governance (ISSIG) is  an informal network of regional Schools of Internet Governance in

• Europe (EURO-SSIG) since 2007
• Latin America, (SOUTH-SSIG) since 2009
• Arabia (2009)
 Africa ( since 2013)
• Asia & Pacific (2011)

Each of the regional Schools on Internet governance are formally independent but all  follow the same principles and procedures. The concept is based on a package course at academic master level up the 48 teaching hours and is very practical oriented. The course is subdivided in teaching moduls which cover both global and regional Internet governance issues.

The main Internet governance course offers 48 hours of academic and practical lectures which cover both global and regional Internet governance problems. The course takes its conceptual inspiration from the broad Internet governance definition of the UN Working Group on Internet governance (WGIG) which was confirmed by the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis (2005). It follows closely the issues discussed by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and incorporates them, as appropriate, into the teaching programme.

If you plann to organise a Summer School on Internet Governance in your region please do not heasitate to contact Wolfgang Kleinwächter or Sandra Hoferichter for more information.
