Dear All,

Just to let you know that Diplo's Internet Governance Capacity Building 
Programme was launched at the beginning of March 138 participants chosen 
from 570 applications from 92 developping countries. These participants will 
be divided into 9 regional groups, including one bilingual Spanish group, 
mainly from Latin American countries.

This year, the 16 week online course has been restructured into two phases: 
a 6-week introductory phase on the basic issues surrounding Internet 
Governance and Policy followed by a 10-week intermediate phase focussing on 
issues from the various thematic areas that are of  specific concern to 
developping countries.

This will be followed by a three month online research phase, where 
participants will form research teams online to carry out policy research on 
Internet Governance and Policy. The top participants on in the programme 
will then be eligible for fellowships to attend the IGF in Rio or related 
regional meetings, work on research projects or internships with partner 

I am attaching a brief outline of the participants selected for this year's 
programme, for your information. If you would like to know more about this 
programme please go to: www.diplomacy.edu/ig

Kind regards
