Media Hub: Reporting from the IGF

Welcome to the IGF 2019 Media Hub

During the IGF 2019 several organisations and initiatives will report from different sessions. This page offers you a general overview about them. At the same time the wiki serves as a platform for the produced content to be presented and shared.

During the IGF this page will change from day to day presenting you always the best stories and reports. Until then it's a static page.

Follow this link if you want to contribute yourself to the wiki!

Where do I find what?

The Media Hub is divided in thematic categories following the structure of the IGF. Within each thematic sub-categorie you find core Questions, statements, videos and further resources. Further there is an overview of all sessions that are related to the topic and the available reports of sessions that already took place.

If you are looking for a report from a specific session we recommend to directly search on the website of DIPLO or use the search function of this Wiki.
