About this book

The volume explores the consequences of recent events in global Internet policy and possible ways forward following the 2012 World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12). It offers expert views on transformations in governance, the future of multistakeholderism and the salience of cybersecurity. Based on the varied backgrounds of the contributors, the book provides an interdisciplinary perspective drawing on international relations, international law and communication studies. It addresses not only researchers interested in the evolution of new forms of transnational networked governance, but also practitioners who wish to get a scholarly reflection on current regulatory developments. It notably provides firsthand accounts on the role of the WCIT-12 in the future of Internet governance.

Reviews

“The editors and the authors have done very careful work: the book’s structure is beyond that of conference proceedings. … The book deals with the main controversies around governing organizations of the Internet, and treats surveillance and security themes in detail. … I warmly recommend the book to those who are interested in the controversial status of Internet governance and the issues to be resolved, and who want to understand the history of the actors and policies governing it.” (K. Balogh, Computing Reviews, April, 2015)
