North American School of Internet Governance
A Brief History
The first NASIG was launched in San Juan, PR, as a three-day event with the NASIG 2018 slogan: Many Challenges, One Internet: Your Role. On March 7, 8 & 9 March 2018, and followed by the celebration of the ICANN61 Public Forum meeting, 35 students from Canada, the United States, and Puerto Rico were lectured by 19 faculty members on Internet Governance concepts.
In 2019 NASIG Montreal took place with an English and French track prior to the ICANN66 Annual General Assembly. Glenn McKnight led them as the Chair of the English track, and Pierre Jean Darres as the chair of the French track.

In 2020 the event was planned for Washington, DC, before the IGF USA 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2022, the North American School of Internet Governance (NASIG) was hosted by EDP University in Puerto Rico for a three-day event. This year's theme, "Emerging Technologies and Cybersecurity: Impact on Internet Governance," highlighted the effects of emerging technologies on privacy, cybersecurity, and law enforcement, among other topics.
