Global governance challenges

Oxford's James Martin 21st Century School has kindly asked me to contribute to their seminar series next term on Global Governance Challenges. My topic — Faraday Cages, Marbled Palaces and Humpty Dumpty: the Reality of Internet Governance:

Decisions that will shape our information societies for decades are being made today — but not where you might expect. Rather than the White House or Silicon Valley, look to Fort Meade in Maryland and the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva for the source of policies that will have the biggest impact on global privacy, security and innovation. Which is to be master? Should — and could — citizens have a bigger say?

Hope to see some Blogzilla readers on 26 February at the Old India Institute!
