The editorial team was formed in September 2017, following a public call for applications, and was later extended following expressions of interest from alumni of SEEDIG capacity development programmes. Our editors regularly monitor Internet governance and digital policy developments and activities in South Eastern Europe and the neighbouring, and create a summary report that is published at the end of each month. The SEEsummaries are possible thanks to their voluntary work.

Mirko Savković | Serbia
For me SEEDIG was the opportunity to learn something new and exciting. Through my studies I lived in Turkey, Poland, UK, Ireland and Czech Republic, spending most of my time in coffee places. I am a ‘professional amateur’, never having enough time for all of the things that I am interested in. When I finally have some time I spend it on civic activism, Wikipedia editing, socialising, getting lost among library shelves and long walks around the city.
