Today Wednesday October 22 2014 the Internet Society UK England Chapter (ISOC-E) in association with International Institute of Communications UK Chapter (IIC UK) and the London School of Economics Media Policy Project present Internet Governance on the move: from ‘NetMundial’ to the US Government IANA oversight transition, the year of institutional evolution. A distinguished panel will discuss the IANA transition, the current ITU Plenipotentiary Conference, and the 2015 review of the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), examining questions such as: What will the map of Internet Governance look like in a couple of years’ time? Where and how will global issues of Internet policy be discussed, from new domain names to net neutrality and other online freedoms? What is ‘the global multi-stakeholder community’? How should it oversee the basic governance structures for the Internet? What is the UK’s role and place in this evolution? Panel: Sarah Taylor, Deputy Director, Creative Economy, Internet, International, DCMS; Martin Boyle, Nominet and Member of the International Coordination Group for the transition of the IANA oversight; Andrew Puddephat, Global Partners Digital and European Council of Foreign Relations; Malcolm Hutty, Head of Public Affairs, London Internet Exchange (LINX). Moderator: Professor Robin Mansell of the LSE. Remote participation is available via webex. The event will be webcast live on the Internet Society Livestream Channel.
