Actors and fields of action
Our study Who governs the internet? Actors and Fields of Action was commissioned by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and can be downloaded for free in German and English from the Foundation's website and our own.
Internet governance concerns the questions of how the internet remains technically, socially and politically functional. How exactly does internet regulation work and what are the possibilities of control?
Who governs the Internet? attempts to answer these questions. Our authors provide an overview of the history of internet regulation, explaining regulatory approaches and highlighting ways the internet can be actively shaped. In addition, the relevant actors in the field are introduced, a glossary explains the most important terms and further links, information and references help readers delve further into the topic.
