Internet governance is a simple term without a simple
definition. In the name of Internet sovereignty, nations
have begun to implement various regulations to control the
flow of information within or across their virtual
territorial boundaries. The unique interconnected and
multilateral characteristics of the Internet renders it
impossible for one nation alone to provide adequate
solutions to managing the Internet. The author argues that
many of the issues related to Internet governance should be
allocated to international institutions and a nation’s
sovereign power over the Internet should be bounded by its
commitments and responsibilities under international law. In
the absence of a coherent regulatory framework, this book
examines whether the existing international legal systems
are sufficiently generic to accommodate the challenges
brought about by technological developments.
