ABOUT US

Introduction

Afghanistan has shown a promising growth rate in the field of IT and telecom since 2001. There are huge opportunities in the country for the growth of this sector ahead as well. The Internet has been adopted as the mean of communication in the country and there are 5-7 million plus Internet users in the country. With over three billion users connected globally, the Internet is a fundamental component of economic, social, and political life around the world and 50 billion devices is estimated that will be connected to the Internet by 2020. There is a huge need for the accessible, flexible functioning and stable Internet infrastructure in the country and the world and it is becoming increasingly important for developed, emerging, and developing countries and their citizens like Afghanistan.

Being there a huge number of Internet users in the country, Internet Governance is still an untouched and contested topic and the National IT Professionals Association of Afghanistan (NITPAA) has stepped forward to initiate and conduct the Afghanistan School on Internet Governance (AfSIG) through which NITPAA will try to offer understanding, framing, and outlining actions to be taken in the current Internet governance environment. It will offer potential governance scenarios and analyze its international, regional, and national political, economic, and technical implications.

About AfSIG

Organized by National IT Professional Association of Afghanistan (NITPAA) the AfSIG will offer a 2 days long course covering the political, legal, economic, socio-cultural, technological dimensions of the Internet Governance in regards to the global and Afghanistan’s National necessities.

OBJECTIVE

The main aim of this AfSIG is to help individuals from Afghanistan in order to better understand the national, regional and international Internet Governance issues, settings, and processes, while gaining access to comprehensive and structured knowledge on various aspects of Internet Governance, and the actors, issues and settings surrounding it.
The relevant global organizations like APNIC, APTLD, ISOC and ICANN support such initiatives. According to their policy, they are committed to strengthen the understanding of Internet Governance within stakeholder groups.
