Chatham House convened an 18-month seminar series on contemporary issues in internet governance. The seminars, held every one to two months, provided a forum for senior figures in the internet governance debates to engage in candid, one-hour discussions on topical issues with a small group of representatives from government, industry and academia working on these subjects.

Speakers included Marietje Schaake, member of the European Parliament; Chris Painter, coordinator for cyber issues at the US Department of State; Malcolm Turnbull, minister for communications, Australia; and Sally Costerton, senior adviser to the president of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). 

The series also featured larger evening panel events aimed at engaging a wider audience in internet governance issues.
