The latest from Diplo...
DISCUSS.diplomacy.edu is a space for discussing ideas and concepts from Diplo’s teaching and research activities. Our activities focus on three main areas: Internet governance, diplomacy, and global governance. In September, we DISCUSS: a) network neutrality: hype and reality, b) the IGF experience: what can policy-makers learn from the IGF, and c) the history of the Internet. Let us know if you have suggestions about ideas and concepts that should be discussed.
