EVENT 19 September American University Washington DC GIGNET Academic Internet Governance (USA Region)


Dear Colleagues,

Of interest to many, the United States regional Internet Governance Forum will take place on September 19, 2013 at American University in Washington, D.C. in the School of International Service.

GigaNet scholars involved in organizing the event at American University include Professor Nanette Levinson, Professor Derrick Cogburn, and Professor Laura DeNardis. We hope that many other GigaNet members will join us at this event, which will feature prominent leaders from the NTIA, the State Department, American technology companies, Internet governance institutions, and Internet freedom advocacy groups. The Honorable Larry Strickland is giving a morning address and Nanette, Derrick and I will keep you informed about the day-long program as it shapes up.

The event will address a host of critical topics including the intersection of national security and individual privacy (among other issues).

We would greatly appreciate it if you could help spread the word in social media and throughout your various networks. Regards, Laura DeNardis
