The High Politics of Internet Governance

International Affairs Building, Room 1512


October 30, 2015
1:00pm to 2:00pm
On December 15-16 in New York, the United Nations is convening a General Assembly High-Level Meeting to review the goals of the World Summit on the Information Society after a decade (WSIS+10) and to craft a future vision for the information society. Input from various stakeholders has raised questions about the future of the Internet and who will run it. This Columbia SIPA panel will explain the implications of this dialog for Internet sustainability, security, and freedom, and how this high-level discussion connects to the planned transition of U.S. oversight in Internet governance.
