There is an obvious need for systematic study of Internet Governance, as more
governments and international organisations strive to create successful Information
Infrastructure policies, and turn the focal point of economic development to
building knowledge-driven economies. This will result in new governance frameworks
being adopted, as states begin to address concerns such as privacy and security
from a networked perspective.
Members of the UIS are able to post information regarding their current projects
on the research section of the UIS website. This in no way affects their proprietary
rights on their work - it merely provides them with a forum to present their
research designs/findings for discussion.
Conference Papers / Drafts
Governments and the Issue of Internet Control
Spread and Universal Access
Documents submitted to the UIS-team will first be examined to ensure
that they meet the standards the UIS wants to safeguard. This is
not an attempt to 'direct' research, but to encourage a similar
format to the Unit's agenda.
The UIS envisages that the research section will be highly dynamic,
due to the nature of the topic.
