Internet Governance

This podcast features session audio from the EDUCAUSE 2013 Annual Conference. The speaker is James X. Dempsey, Policy Director at the Center for Democracy and Technology.

Who controls the Internet, and how might changes in the governance structure affect access and freedom? A global debate is under way over who should govern the Internet, with momentous consequences in store for access, freedom, and innovation. In fact, national governments, international bodies, technical standards organizations, institutions of higher education, the companies that provide the infrastructure and software, and users themselves all have a role to play. This talk will unpack a widely misunderstood topic that deserves the attention of all who care about the future of the Internet.
