North American School of Internet Governance

About the North American School
of
Internet Governance

 

NASIG is an in-depth capacity building event that focuses on teaching the development and application of the shared principles, norms, rules, policies, decision-making procedures and organizations that shape the evolution and use of the Internet. Additionally, NASIG seeks to empower the next generation of Internet leaders.

NASIG 2018 will be held in Puerto Rico on March 7, 8 & 9 March 2018 and will be followed by the celebration of ICANN 61 Public Forum meeting. We expect approximately 40 students coming in from Canada, the United States, and Puerto Rico, and 16+ lecturers.

About the Program

The curriculum is set-up following NASIG 2018 slogan: Many Challenges, One Internet: Your Role.

Following is a brief context explanation of the event's tone, and perspective.

One Internet. The first part of the program is used to put the Internet Ecosystem into context, as a global network.

  • Introduction to Internet Governance
  • Internet Ecosystem
  • What makes the Internet Work?

Many Challenges.We want to highlight important Internet Governance (IG) issues such as Cyber Security, Privacy, Trust, Fragmentation, and others. These topics of discussion were selected based on a combination of a survey sent to stakeholders in the region, as well as comments from our expert speakers.

  • Internet Policies
  • Multistakeholderism
  • Cybersecurity
  • The Future of Internet: Trust and Privacy
  • What are we doing to gain your trust?
  • Internet trust from students' perspective
  • How does the Internet Affect Societies? Fear, anonymity, ethical, moral,...
  • Internet Governance: Gender & Diversity - Present & Future 

Your Role. The last of part of the school is a call to action aimed at motivating the NASIG 2018 students to engage in the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) space and Internet-related organizations that are influential in meeting the goals of creating a stronger Internet ecosystem.

  • Internet Governance: How can you participate?
  • Pep talk: It feels good to contribute to a better Internet
  • Engaging with the experts
