Internet Governance: What’s at Stake?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The intense scrutiny of the IANA transition illustrates how much things have changed in the Internet governance. We seem to recall that during our “Internet governance” breakout panel at the 1st annual State of the Net Conference (over a decade ago) the speakers almost outnumbered the attendees. Now more and more businesses, governments, advocates, citizens, law enforcement agencies, the military and NGOs are recognizing that the stakes involved in the evolution of the Internet governance framework could be absolutely enormous. The truly breathtaking part of this evolution is that it is not quite clear what path it will take and how it will turn out. With regard to the Internet, it simply has never been done before. We have assembled a panel of speakers to discuss the high stakes involved in Internet governance and where things go from here.
