"The Evolution of Global Internet Governance": New book by CMCS Fellow Roxana Radu

The Evolution of Global Internet Governance: book cover

A new book, The Evolution of Global Internet Governance: Principles and Policies in the Making, was co-edited by CMCS Research Fellow Roxana Radu, Jean-Marie Chenou and Prof. Dr. iur. Rolf H. Weber. The book, published by Schulthess Verlag in Switzerland, explores the consequences of recent events in global Internet policy and possible ways forward following the 2012 World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12).

The book will be officially launched at the 8th Annual Symposium of the Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet) on October 21 in Bali. (Roxana Radu and Stefania Milan, another non-resident CMCS Research Fellow, will also participate in a session on 'Surveillance & Snowden' at that symposium, presenting on "When the 'global public' responds: Internet governance and collective action".)

The Evolution of Global Internet Governance offers expert views on transformations in governance, the future of multistakeholderism and the salience of cybersecurity. It provides an interdisciplinary perspective drawing on international relations, international law and communication studies, and provides firsthand accounts on the role of the WCIT-12 in the future of Internet governance.

Roxana Radu is currently a PhD candidate at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. Her co-editors are Jean-Marie Chenou, PhD candidate at the University of Lausanne, and Prof. Dr. iur. Rolf H. Weber, University of Zurich.
