INVITATION: European Workshop on policy watch activities

More and more initiatives to map Internet policies and Internet Governance developments have been evolving during the last couple of years with various focuses - national, regional or global. Building on the experience from participating in these type of ‘mapping’ meetings, the 2017 MAPPING workshop wants to focus on best and worst experiences from the Internet observatories in an effort to create a best practice document that would help not only the current projects, but especially the ones that are to be developed in the next years.
