Governing Global Electronic Networks

International Perspectives on Policy and Power

MIT Press

The burgeoning use and transformative impact of global electronic
networks are widely recognized to be defining features of contemporary world
affairs. Less often noted has been the increasing importance of global governance
arrangements in managing the many issues raised in such networks. This volume helps
fill the gap by assessing some of the key international institutions pertaining to
global telecommunications regulation and standardization, radio frequency spectrum,
satellite systems, trade in services, electronic commerce, intellectual property,
traditional mass media and Internet content, Internet names and numbers, cybercrime,
privacy protection, and development. Eschewing technocratic approaches, the
contributors offer empirically rich studies of the international power dynamics
shaping these institutions. They devote particular attention to the roles and
concerns of nondominant stakeholders, such as developing countries and civil
society, and find that global governance often reinforces wider power disparities
between and within nation-states. But at the same time, the contributors note,
governance arrangements often provide nondominant stakeholders with the policy space
needed to advance their interests more effectively. Each chapter concludes with a
set of policy recommendations for the promotion of an open, dynamic, and more
equitable networld order.ContributorsPeng Hwa Ang, Jonathan D. Aronson, Byung-il
