APNIC participated at the second Pakistan School on Internet Governance (pkSIG 2016) held in Lahore from 26 to 29 November.

pkSIG was established in 2015 to educate and encourage academics, IT specialists, and professionals from different walks of life to discuss the complex nature of Internet governance, legal and regulatory challenges, capacity building, infrastructure development and Internet public policy in Pakistan.

Around 30 participants attended this year’s four-day program, which included theoretical sessions, panel discussions and role-play activity.

APNIC activities:

  • Sunny Chendi introduced attendees to the Regional Internet Registries. With the aid of APNIC-produced playing cards, he organized an interactive game where the concepts of IP addressing, networking and routing were introduced, together with an explanation of the role of each technical coordination organization.
  • Sunny met with alumni of the APNIC fellowship program from Afghanistan and Pakistan who were also attending the event.
