Internet governance research has traditionally been at the interdisciplinary cross-roads of many traditions. In the last years, this trend is becoming more prevalent as the challenges to address and theorize Internet governance issues increasingly rely on a greater understanding of the nexus between technical configurations and their social, legal, and economic implications. To help bridge the gap across disciplines and open opportunities for interdisciplinary research, this half day event will feature a panel of computer scientists and social, political and/or legal scientists who have been conducting research on issues such as censorship, net neutrality, access, privacy and surveillance to discuss methodological issues as well best practices for collaboration between scholars from a variety of disciplines and examples of those collaborations. In addition to building space for increased collaboration between researchers in different academic fields, this event will discuss efforts to enable communication and coordination with CSOs who are engaged in research as part of digital rights advocacy efforts.
