  • A report should be 8,000-10,000 words in length. 
  • Reports should be comprehensive in scope and include all the signatory countries in each given region and a selection of key-non-signatory countries. The scope of the report will be one of the factors in the assessment of the proposal.
  • Authors will be offered a fee of EUR 2500.
  • Reports will be published on the website from the Global Initiative on the Future of the Internet’s project.
  • Authors should propose two visuals to be included in the publication. They are responsible for providing the data. Data visualisation will be prepared by the GIFI team.
