Getting the management of the networks that make up the internet right is critcally important. As a "network of platforms" takes shape what management tools are appropriate? This workshop aims to build on the succesful workshop and remaining open questions from IGF Sharm el-Sheikh. This is a hotly debated issue around the globe. Many governments are experimenting with different models of regulation. These models appear to be having an effect on investment in the infrastructure. There are many engeneering, economic, and social considerations that are part of the management mix. We hope to partner with other groups to present a balanced, multi-stakeholder, workshop that brings about the perspectives of diferent stakeholders and offers ample opportuntity for audience participation. Some of the questions we will be discussion are: What is (not) appropriate network management from a technical, economic, legal, ideological, political and cultural point of view? Special focus will be put on emerging economic models and the role network neutrality principles play, including the concepts of tiered internet and third party services agreements. The role of regulators and stricking the right balance on regulation will be explored.
