V-ati intrebat vreodata cine guverneaza de fapt Internetul ? Ce rol are fiecare grup national sau international de care ati auzit - ICANN, IANA, IETF ?
Dar ce se discuta despre guvernarea pe viitor al Internetului ?
Ce fac americanii ca sa impuna o lege a neutralitatii Internetului ?
Toate astea si multe altele le puteti descoperi intr-un curs online - deosebit de bine pregatit si pus la dispozitie de Fundatia Diplo.
Ii cunosc pe unii participanti din 2006 si am auzit numai cuvinte de lauda la adresa acestui program - cei mai activi au primit si o calatorie la sesiunea IGF, unde practic se discuta si aceste lucururi.
Atentie ! Cei din Romania sunt inca in sectiunea de developing countries si deci pot primi o acoperire a costurilor de participare la acest curs.
Data limita s-a prelungit pina la 15.02.2007(initial 10 Februarie 2007), deci trebuie sa va miscati repede daca va intereseaza.
Intreg proiectul este in limba engleza

Capacity Building Training Programme 2007
DiploFoundation, in cooperation with various partners, is currently accepting applications for the 2007 Internet Governance Capacity Building Training Programme.
This programme is designed to improve Internet Governance (IG) related knowledge and skills for participants mainly from developing countries and to facilitate community building among individuals with different national, cultural, and professional backgrounds.
The programme offers 135 places for young professionals from diverse stakeholder backgrounds in IG related fields and is open to individuals from all around the world. Participants from developing countries are eligible to receive full scholarship support. A special bilingual Spanish-English speaking group will be formed as well.
The programme includes an online training phase, a research phase, and capacity building fellowships awarded to a number of successful participants in the programme. Fellowship opportunities include internships with partner organisations and attendance at IG related meetings, including the Internet Governance Forum later in the year.
The programme includes online learning and research phases that take place over eight months:
The learning phase consists of the Foundation Course (introductory materials and activities) and the Advanced Course (advanced materials, involvement of discussion facilitators and experts, introduction of advanced online communication and discussion tools). Learning activities take place in an online classroom and include the analysis of course materials, interactive group discussions using a variety of communication tools, assignments and exams;
The research phase involves supervised collaborative online work focused on IG policy issues of highest relevance to developing countries, and is closely linked to training activities.
