Kieren McCarthy: The Case for Revitalising Internet Governance

Alun Davies
Contributors: Kieren McCarthy, Chris Buckridge

Are the organisations that form the Internet governance ecosystem failing to rise to new challenges the modern Internet has created? And if so, what steps need to be taken in order to revitalise Internet governance?

Joining me to discuss these questions in more depth are Kieren McCarthy - journalist, Internet governance expert, and author of the paper Revitalising Global Internet Governance - and Chris Buckridge - advisor to the RIPE NCC Managing Director on issues of Global Strategic Engagement and member of the IGF's multistakeholder advisory group.
