Dear colleagues,

As you know, UNCTAD held their e-commerce week these past days in Geneva.
Many of the sessions touched upon points of relevance to the Internet
Governance community, such as cybersecurity, online privacy and data
localisation. The Geneva Internet Platform provided a just-in-time reporting
<https://dig.watch/events/unctad-e-commerce-week-2017> from many of the
sessions. You will find information about it below.

During the e-commerce week, the GIP, ITC, CUTS, UNCTAD and Diplo
launched a course
on Digital Commerce <https://www.diplomacy.edu/courses/commerce>, which
aims, among other things, to enable an exchange of information about the
interplay between trade and digital policies, in preparation for the WTO
ministerial at the end of the year.

All the best wishes,
