Internet and International Relations
The forthcoming issue of Foreign Affairs has a fascinating article on "Who Will Control the Internet?", by Kenneth Neil Cukier, who covers technology and regulatory issues for The Economist. Its summary goes as follows: "Foreign governments want control of the Internet transferred from an American NGO to an international institution. Washington has responded with a Monroe Doctrine for our times, setting the stage for further controversy." Kenneth Neil Cukier, Who Will Control the Internet?", Foreign Affairs, November/December 2005 is, for the time being, available on line.
