[Webinar] Evidence and measurement in IG: What sort of data and numbers are we talking about?

Although the Internet is an engineering artefact, we have very little data relevant for Internet Governance (IG). In cybersecurity, for example, we are still in doubt about the number of threats and the size of the losses incurred. The same applies in other IG fields. Without understanding the scope of the problem, it is difficult to discuss possible…

L’aspect « liberté de presse » dans la gouvernance de l’Internet

Dans le vaste champ des droits de l’homme, la liberté d’expression et sa composante fondamentale qu’est la liberté de presse s’impliquent nécessairement dans la gouvernance de l’Internet.

Au cours de la 9è réunion du FGI à Istanbul (Turquie), l’ONG Comité pour la Protection des Journalistes (CPJ) a proposé une table ronde pour explorer le rôle des différents acteurs (sociétés de technologies, gouvernement, milieux universitaires, journalistes et organisations de médias), dans la…

Who are the stakeholders?

Grace posted some interesting ideas on Multistakeholderism yesterday, on which I've just commented.

On Friday last week I read the article referred to below on the BBC website. I noticed what appeared to be an important omission if we're considering "stakeholders" and reaching a sound decision based on discussion which includes all available perspectives. I would be interested to hear what other people think.

On 10th August on the BBC website I found…

Lack of transparency of the Internet infrastructure can lead to investment inefficiencies

While network operators are fierce competitors, the nature of the Internet dictates that they must also co-operate, and there is a need for technical co-ordination to ensure efficient inter-networking. Several participants within IG circle stressed that the lack of information in the public domain in the telecommunication and Internet sectors led to large inefficiencies in these markets during the “Internet bubble”. For example, in the late 1990s, network operators invested…

Socio-cultural Factors

Socio-cultural factors are influences derived from the customs, traditions, perceptions and beliefs of an individual’s culture and can be a key determinant in whether or not a person even agrees to seek care and use the devices. To increase the usability of a design, a device should fit seamlessly into societal norms by not resembling anything with a negative social connotation, not disrupting gender roles and…

Social/Economic Factors Shaping the Future of the Internet

Today’s Internet is the sum of all the Public and Private investment, activities, decisions, inventions and creativity of billion users, over 23000 autonomous systems, and countless creators and innovators.

In a relatively short time, the Internet has become a fundamental infrastructure for our economies and societies and, as a result, raises increasingly important policy issues across a broad range of economic and social dimensions. Three main trends are increasingly influencing the…
