SEEsummary

A monthly overview of Internet governance and digital policy developments and activities in
South Eastern Europe and the neighouring area (SEE+)

Launched in September 2016, the SEEsummary – a one of a kind initiative in the region – provides a monthly overview of Internet governance and digital policy developments and activities occurring in SEE+.

Updates covered in the summary are structured around Internet and digital policy issues, such as infrastructure, cybersecurity, human rights online, e-commerce, and the digital divide. For this purpose, we use the classification of Internet and digital policy issues developed by DiploFoundation and showcased in the Geneva Internet Platform Digital Watch Observatory.

In partnership with DiploFoundation and the Geneva Internet Platform

Editorial note

The SEEsummary is produced on a best effort basis, by our team of volunteer editors. Each month, the editors scan local and regional media, as well as websites of public institutions and other organisations, and compile what they find to be some of the most significant digital policy developments.

The SEEsummary does not claim to be a comprehensive source of information. Despite our efforts, we may miss some things happening across the region. To help us cover as many significant developments as possible, we invite you to share with us news from your countries.

While we do our best to double-check the information we cover, and we always provide links to the sources, we acknowledge the fact that errors might appear in our summaries. Please rest assured that such errors are never made on purpose. And we always stand ready to correct them.

For any corrections or contributions to our summaries, please contact SEESummary coordinator Sorina Teleanu, at editors[at]seedig.net.
