Digital Watch Newsletter for September 2015

The third issue of Digital Watch is summarising developments in digital politics over the summer months of July and August, with a special focus on Geneva.

In this issue you can find an analysis of WSIS+10 non-paper submissions. More than 80 submissions for non-papers were made to the WSIS+10 process prior to the High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly in December. The documents were analysed in order to provide an overview of the main themes addressed, their relevance by stakeholder group, and the most frequently used words.

At the same time you can find what went up and what went down in our Internet governance barometer as well as information on the recent decisions by courts and regulators continue to confirm that operating across the ubiquitous Internet can expose Internet corporations to the jurisdictions of countries other than the country in which they are headquartered.
