Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet)

A global network for scholars of internet governance

About


The Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet) is an emerging scholarly community initiated in spring 2006 in conjunction with the UN Internet Governance Forum. Its four principal objectives are to:
  • support the establishment of a global network of scholars specializing in Internet governance issues;
  • promote the development of Internet governance as a recognized, interdisciplinary field of study;
  • advance theoretical and applied research on Internet governance, broadly defined, and;
  • facilitate informed dialogue on policy issues and related matters between scholars and Internet governance stakeholders (governments, international organizations, the private sector, and civil society).
