AN ANALYSIS OF INTERNET DEPLOYMENT AND GOVERNANCE

Martin H. Knahl

Abstract

Internet governance is concerned with the global management and operation of key internet resources. Given the global nature and reach of internet based services, technological as well as political aspects and considerations are interwoven and cannot be separated. This paper analyses current trends and developments regarding internet deployment and governance and is considering future developments. The paper suggests that governments as well as market governance will remain present for the network access and content. Is is further argued that internet governance is having more diversity with respect to governance and more prominent network governance than other communication channels. The paper further considers future developments and proposes alternative perspectives.
