Plans for a Global Internet Policy Platform

A Global Internet Policy Observatory (GIPO) - an online platform to improve knowledge and participation in debates and decisions on Internet policies – is being planned by the European Commission, the institution announced on May, 5.    
The online platform is expected to act as a clearinghouse for monitoring Internet policy, regulatory and technological developments across the world.
The African Union has agreed to cooperate or presented their interest to be involved in the project, together with Brazil, Switzerland, the Association for Progressive Communication, Diplo Foundation and the Internet Society.
Among others, it is planned that the GIPIO will:  
•    monitor Internet-related policy developments at the global level       
•   contextualise information, for example by collecting existing academic information on a specific topic   
•    identify policy trends, via quantitative and qualitative methods such as semantic and sentiment analysis;
The end objective of GIPO is to increase expertise and understanding among all actors, including countries, NGOs and interest groups which may have so far been marginalised in Internet debates and decisions.
