Psiphon Attending the First APSIG

On September 11th to 15th 2016, Psiphon attended the first Asia Pacific School of Internet Governance (APSIG) hosted in Bangkok, Thailand.


The weeklong regional school took place at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), where more than 30 participants from various countries in Asia Pacific came together to share their experience and knowledge on the Regional Internet Governance issues. Organized by the Internet Education and Research Laboratory (inTERLab), the five-day workshop featured keynote speakers from various backgrounds such as international organizations, academic institutes, civil society, government and business sectors. These organizations include: Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), OpenNet Korea and Com First India

As a software company that develops a trusted tool that enables unrestricted Internet content access, Psiphon was very excited to share its feedback on Internet Governance issues, including the improvement of public awareness on Internet content freedom in the Asia Pacific Region. We were extremely happy to connect with established users, within the school, to collect and understand feedback provided in regards to our software. Furthermore, Psiphon built relationships with new users from South and Southeast Asian countries, such as Thailand, Pakistan and Philippines. During the role-play workshops, Psiphon contributed to the final report on the facilitation of new Internet users in the next decade. This report is now available on the APSIG official website at apsig.asia.

APSIG is a pilot program envisioned by Dr. Kilnam Chon and the next APSIG will also be hosted in Bangkok, Thailand.
