Join live webcasts and discussions from the Internet Governance Forum in Baku.

Thanks to everyone who voted for Internet Governance Forum sessions we should take part in as part of the Southampton Remote Hub. We’ll be following sessions on: cybercrime and rule of law; information and ethics; power, politics and internet filtering; social media and young people’s freedom of expression; open knowledge in developing countries; and a session giving an overview of global Internet infrastructures. You can drop in for any of these sessions.

We will also have a 30 minute introduction to the Internet Governance Forum on Monday 5th November at 10am, where Tim who has been at the last three IGF meetings will give a bit of background to what it is, what to expect, and how we’ll be taking part via Remote Participation.

More details on sessions in the attached, and in the online schedule:
