Internet Governance

Friday, October 18 | 10:10AM–11:00AM | Ballroom C
Session Type: E13

Who controls the Internet, and how might changes in the governance structure affect access and freedom? A global debate is under way over who should govern the Internet, with momentous consequences in store for access, freedom, and innovation. In fact, national governments, international bodies, technical standards organizations, institutions of higher education, the companies that provide the infrastructure and software, and users themselves all have a role to play. This talk will unpack a widely misunderstood topic that deserves the attention of all who care about the future of the Internet.
