Call for Applications for the 4th African School on Internet Governance
The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency are pleased to announce the call for applications for the fourth "African School on Internet Governance (AfriSIG)":http://afrisig.org/. The 2016 School will be held in Durban, South Africa from 11 to 15 October 2016 in conjunction with the African Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

Have you ever thought about the massive and significant role that the internet plays in the world? In Africa, even though connectivity is still not nearly sufficient, the internet touches on multiple aspects of daily life, economic and social development, governance and government. This adds new dimensions and challenges to privacy, security, human rights, women's rights, and business, to mention a few. These are issues that are not new to the realm of governance, but dealing with them in the context of a fast-changing, cross-border internet adds new dynamics and complexity.

The goal of AfriSIG is to give Africans from multiple sectors and stakeholder groups the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to enable them to participate effectively in internet governance processes and debates at the national, regional and global levels. AfriSIG also builds the capacity of people with existing expertise as the School facilitates peer learning and many participants are already established experts in internet policy and regulation. In addition to a five-day intensive learning event, AfriSIG provides all the participants with the opportunity to participate in the African IGF.

Building on the model of the European and Latin American Internet Governance Schools, APC and the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency launched the first AfriSIG in July 2013 in Durban, South Africa. The second AfriSIG took place in November 2014 in Mauritius and the third in Addis Ababa at the African Union from 1 to 5 September 2015.

We believe that AfriSIG can increase the diversity, extent, quality and effectiveness of African participation in internet governance at the national, regional and global levels. AfriSIG's broader goals are to strengthen African perspectives and voices in global internet governance and to achieve more inclusive and transparent internet governance on the continent.

Through learning and knowledge sharing, AfriSIG aims to build a multidisciplinary cadre of African expertise in internet governance. The School will bring together a diverse group of professionals from government, business, academia and civil society who are interested and involved in internet policy and development. The School prides itself in offering a world-class learning environment, with a faculty that has the experience and expertise to convey both practical and theoretical knowledge. AfriSIG graduates will better understand internet governance from a public interest perspective, have a grasp of internet policy processes and institutions, and be able to engage more effectively in national, regional and international processes and networks.

Who should apply?
The school is intended for leaders and professionals from:
Government ministries and departments, national and regional communications regulatory authorities, and public sector information and communications services such as public libraries.
Parliamentary portfolio committees that deal with communications issues.
Network operators, service providers and other businesses who form part of the internet industry.
Civil society and non-governmental organisations who interact with or operate in the internet-related information and communications sector.
Human rights institutions dealing with internet issues, such as national or regional human rights commissions.
Community-based information and communications services and the broader community informatics sector.
The judiciary and other members of the legal community working with internet and communications law.
Members of law enforcement agencies who deal with internet issues.
The internet technical community.
Academic and research institutions that deal with internet issues.
Media organisations and outlets that focus on the internet.
The topics to be covered include:
History and overview of internet governance
The World Summit in the Information Society (WSIS) and the internet in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Internet and communications policy and development
Human rights-related issues
Internet standards and protocols
The domain name and numbering system
Multistakeholder approaches to internet governance
Regional, national and international institutions involved in internet policy and regulation
Topical issues such as the so-called “right to forget”, internet shutdowns, women’s rights and the internet, net neutrality, online “hate speech” and human rights on the internet.
Successful applicants will be provided with a return economy class ticket, accommodation, meals and course materials. Participants or their employers will have to cover the costs of visas and local transport (to their nearest airport). There are limited spaces for full sponsorship and we encourage self-funding or co-funding for eligible participants who are not awarded full sponsorship.
 
To apply please complete the form "here":https://www.apc.org/limesurvey/index.php/762717/lang-en by Friday, 26 August 2016.

World Development Report 2016: Digital Dividends. Cape Town Launch
Hosted by Research ICT Africa and World Bank Group
 
World Development Report 2016: Digital Dividends (WDR 2016) is a World Bank annual flagship report. Although the topic of the Report is technology, it is looked upon through the lens of development economics. The Report documents many compelling examples where the internet, mobile phones and other digital technologies have delivered digital dividends by boosting growth, expanding opportunities and improving services. But it also finds that the broader benefits have fallen short and have gone disproportionately to the wealthy, skilled and powerful — those best equipped to take advantage of the digital revolution.
 
The official launch of WDR 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa, launched 12 February 2016, was part of a series of regional and country-level dissemination activities following the global launch in Washington DC on January 14, 2016. A presentation by the World Bank team that authored WDR 2016 provided an overview of the Report’s main findings and discussed how countries can gain greater economic and social benefits from digital technologies and access to the internet.
 
Following a presentation of the report by the World Bank team (Indhira Santos and Tim Kelly), there was a panel discussion and Q&A. Panelists included Alison Gillwald, Steve Vosloo and Marlon Parker.

Providing internet access is the precondition for bringing the benefits of digital technologies to everyone and everywhere. But greater digital adoption will not be enough. The WDR 2016 argues that to get the most out of the digital revolution, countries also need to work on the “analog complements” — by strengthening regulations that ensure competition among businesses, by adapting workers’ skills to the demands of the new economy, and by ensuring that institutions are accountable.
