The MAPPING (Managing Alternatives for Privacy, Property and Internet Governance) project was launched in 2014 with the aim of creating an all-round and joined-up understanding of the many and varied economic, social, legal and ethical aspects of the recent developments on the Internet. It also explores the consequences of these developments for the individual and society at large, focusing in particular on three complementary and interlinked problem areas: Intellectual Property Rights, Privacy and Internet Governance.

Climate change diplomacy
Since 2008, Diplo has initiated several conferences and events, and created a new online course with scholarship opportunities for diplomats, civil servants and academics from small and developing states. We built a vibrant online community, created illustrations for use in publications, awareness building, and training, and initiated a project to translate key climate change terms.
