Beyond NETmundial: The Roadmap for Institutional Improvements to the Global Internet Governance Ecosystem was launched on Monday, September 3, at IGF Istanbul. The book, published by the Internet Policy Observatory at the University of Pennsylvania, looks at a broad set of Internet governance-related institutional issues following the NETmundial meeting last April in Brazil. Stakeholders came to the NETmundial meeting from around the globe, debated a range of Internet governance issues and adopted, by rough consensus, the NETmundial Multistakeholder Statement. These outcomes include consideration of the evolution of the Internet ecosystem – with a particular focus on the IGF and the IANA transition. (For more on CDT’s perspective on the NETmundial meeting, see here).
Matthew Shears and Emma Llanso authored a chapter on the IANA transition for Beyond NETmundial entitled, “The IANA Transition in the Context of
Global Internet Governance.”
