National governments, civil society and the private sector are struggling to keep up with rapid technological advances in the digital sphere that provide enormous opportunities but can also prove disruptive and with potential for misuse by state and non-state actors. Against this backdrop, the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres established a High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation in July 2018. The Panel consists of 22 eminent leaders from Governments, the private sector, academia, the technical community, and civil society. The Panel is tasked with advancing proposals in the form of a final report to strengthen cooperation in the digital space among Governments, the private sector, civil society, international organizations, the technical and academic communities and all other relevant stakeholders. The Panel’s report and its recommendations will support Member States in their consultations on these issues and provide a high-level independent contribution to the broader public debate.

A Secretariat has been established to provide substantive and process support to the Panel’s activities.This internship is offered with the Secretariat.
