Institute of Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) was honored for the opportunity to present its research at one of DC’s most inclusive of conferences. It is not often that we step into a conference to find closed captions taking over the main presentation projector. We want to share some of the lessons learned through our experience besides the highlights of our own participation.
The annual World Summit on the Information Society Forum (WSIS) represents the world's largest annual gathering of the ‘ICT for development’ community. The 2018 WSIS Forum is being held this week (March 19-23) in Geneva, Switzerland, at the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) Centre International des Conférences Genève. Dr Derrick Cogburn, Faculty Co-Director of the Internet Governance Lab (IGL) and Executive Director of the IDPP, is attending the Forum as a speaker, where he will promote the IGL's mission of policy-engaged research on digital infrastructure and governance in support of a free and open Internet.
