Anything else you would like to tell us about your school? In this digital age, the internet community not only share opinions but also participate in global discussions about various topics. To fulfill its public responsibility, the Taiwan Network Information Center (TWNIC) established the Taiwan School on Internet Governance (TWSIG) in 2020. The idea is to develop a platform for the Taiwanese Internet community, where people can exchange thoughts and insights on critical issues regarding Internet technologies, economic, social and security, both globally and locally. The goal is to make TWSIG the go-to platform where open, inclusive, and diverse dicscussions take place.

In partnership with NIIEPA,TWNIC will be holding a series of events throughout the year to facilitate public dialogues on a range of topics. We will be looking at important global Internet Governance issues, and we will try to examine the significance and impact of those issues to the Taiwanese society. We also hope that, by encouraging open and inclusive discussions, we will make the multistakeholder model a norm for public deliberation.

We welcome proposals from organizations and individuals who care about Internet public policy issues.
