Despite its wide reach and powerful global influence, the Internet is a medium uncontrolled by any one centralized system, organization, or governing body, a reality that has given rise to all manner of free-speech issues and cybersecurity concerns. In her book The Global War for Internet Governance, Internet governance scholar and American University professor, Laura DeNardis reveals the inner power structure of Internet governance on the international scene and explores the characteristics of Internet Governance that will ultimately determine Internet freedom.
Please join New America March 17 for the DC book launch and conversation about the future of Internet governance in relation to free-speech, cybersecurity, international law, and global power.
