Un livre multidisciplinaire qui prend la recherche sur la gouvernance de l’internet comme sujet de recherche à part entière, discutant des méthodes et des approches conceptuelles.

The open access edition of this book was published with the support of a generous grant from the Hewlett Foundation Cyber Initiative to the Internet Governance Lab at American University

The design and governance of the internet has become one of the most pressing geopolitical issues of our era. The stability of the economy, democracy, and the public sphere depend on the stability and security of the internet. Revelations about election hacking, facial recognition technology, and government surveillance have gotten the public’s attention and made clear the need for scholarly research that examines internet governance both empirically and conceptually. In this volume, scholars from a range of disciplines consider research methods, theories, and conceptual approaches in the study of internet governance.

The contributors show that internet governance is not only about governments ; it is enacted through technical design, resource coordination, and conflicts at various invisible control points. They discuss such topics as the emergence of “internet governance” as an area of academic study and a real-world policy arena ; the scholarly perspectives of STS, the law, computer science, and political science ; the use of big data and text mining in internet governance studies ; and cybersecurity.
