Internet Governance Seminar Series

This seminar series covers contemporary issues in internet governance.

The Chatham House International Security Department convenes an 18-month seminar series on contemporary issues in internet governance. The seminars, held every one to two months, provide 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.

Past speakers have 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 features special events, which are larger evening panel events aimed at engaging a wider audience in internet governance issues. Most recently an event titled ‘Evolving Internet Governance: Challenges and Opportunities in 2015’ was held in partnership with the Oxford Martin School’s Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre. A podcast of this event, which forecast key internet governance challenges for the year ahead, is available at the link for the event below.

Since January 2015 this seminar series has been supported by American International Group, Inc. (AIG).
