WEBCAST TODAY: Will the Internet Fragment? A Discussion with Milton Mueller @OTI @ISOCDC @miltonmueller #netfrag

livestreamToday Tuesday June 6 2017, at noon EDT New America’s Open Technology Institute and the Internet Society Washington DC Chapter present Will the Internet Fragment? a panel featuring Professor Milton Mueller. author, of Will the Internet Fragment?: Sovereignty, Globalization and Cyberspace. In the book, Will the Internet Fragment?, Professor Mueller argues that the fragmentation diagnosis misses the mark, and the rhetoric of fragmentation camouflages the real issue: the attempt by governments to align information flows with their jurisdictional boundaries. The fragmentation debate is really a power struggle over the future of national sovereignty, pitting global governance and open access against traditional territorial institutions of government. This conflict, the book argues, can only be resolved through radical institutional innovations. In order to save the internet, we need to move away from national sovereignty and towards popular sovereignty in cyberspace. PANEL: Dr. Milton Mueller, Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology School of Public Policy; Rebecca MacKinnon, Director, Ranking Digital Rights project at New America; Tim Maurer, Co-director of the Cyber Policy Initiative, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Angela McKay, Senior Director of Cybersecurity Policy and Strategy, Microsoft.
