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).
If you're already a GigaNet member, create your membership profile here. If you are not a member, check out our membership requirements, and sign up today!

GigaNet at SSRN

We now have a fully functioning SSRN page with 101 papers presented in our annual symposiums since 2007 (the first year we had full paper submissions). This collection covers most, but not all, of the symposium papers, as we were not able to retrieve some of the earlier manuscripts. Papers from this year's symposium will be added in due course. 

Huge thanks go to Milton Mueller and the Internet Governance Project for financing this undertaking, and to Julia Pohle and her team at Berlin Social Science Center for helping locating and retrieving as many papers as we could. We also got a lot of help from SSRN staff with uploading, sorting, and labeling all the materials.
