Event Description

A series of scholarly debates on the role of intergovernmental organizations in Internet governance and on the promises and limitations of multi-stakeholderism. In line with GigaNet's objective to promote an informed dialogue between researchers and policy makers, the Geneva workshop seeks to provide scholarly perspectives on current debates. The workshop builds on the proximity to ITU's World Technology Policy Forum and the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) consultations for the 2013 Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and aims to bring together emerging as well as established scholars, and professionals (drawing from governments, international organizations, the private sector, civil society, and funders), in order to establish synergies between a vivid academic field and global Internet policy-making.

We invite five-page long memos that address the role and future of different models of governance of the
Internet, presenting recently completed research or work in progress. Papers from any discipline or
institution, from emerging as well as established scholars, are encouraged. Key questions to be addressed
include, but are not limited to, the following:
· What are the long-term implications of the failure of the WCIT? Is talk of an Internet “Cold War”
relevant, or misleading?
· How can we assess the role of intergovernmental organizations in Internet governance?
· How can cooperation between intergovernmental organizations and NGOs be structured?
· What are the potential and limitations of multistakeholder models of governance?
· What role do non-hierarchical networks currently play in global Internet governance, and should
that role be increased or diminished?
· What is the relevance of sovereignty and jurisdiction when the Internet creates cross-border harm?
Extended abstracts of approximately 800 words can be submitted at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=giganetgeneva2013    

It is expected that participants prepare 5-7page long memos that will be circulated in advance and a 15-minute presentation on the day of the workshop.
