In Geneva, internet governance traditionally enjoyed a high relevance. With issues such as an increasing digital divide, a crisis of trust, concerns regarding cyber threats and infodemics – just to name a few – there is an urgency to promote digital trust and ensure digital rights through a functioning internet governance.

Geneva is not only a historical hub for internet governance but can position itself as a major contributor to future issues, states a report published last week.

This blog article aims to highlight the key takeaways from the Report and its launch event at the Graduate Institute this week. Addressing the challenges mentioned in the report is one of the main objectives of the Swiss Digital Initiative.
