It's a good time for research! Call for papers from ISOC

ISOC has made a call for academic papers, which is part of a project on multistakeholder governance -- of interest to those of you working with, and studying related issues. The two-phase process will try 'to identify the key characteristics and main challenges of Multistakeholder governance'.

Phase I consists of a  Multistakeholder Governance Survey: Dowload the survey results and analysis (PDF)

Phase II is a  Call for Papers in these areas:

  1. The transition of multistakeholder governance from the environment and sustainable development to the Internet. Was multistakeholderism, as a governance choice for the Internet after the World Summit on Information Society, successful?
  2. Enhanced Cooperation: what does it mean and what is its contribution to Multistakeholder participation in particular and Internet Governance in general?
  3. What is the role of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in the context of the WSIS environment and as part of intergovernmental governance structures?
  4. Different organizations (ICANN, ITU, WIPO, OECD, Council of Europe) claim to have adopted multistakeholder governance but they offer different perspectives and interpretations of it. Why does the concept of multistakeholder governance invite such different interpretations?
  5. Many argue that multistakeholder structures are the only way to ensure that the Internet – both technically and socially -- continues to evolve successfully. Do you agree with this assertion and how do you think the future will look like in the context of multistakeholder Internet governance?

Abstracts must be submitted by 31January 2014. See more information on the ISOC page:
