Addressing the Issues of Internet Governance for Development: A Framework for Setting an Agenda for Effective Coordination by William H. Dutton

Addressing the Issues of Internet Governance for Development: A Framework for Setting an Agenda for Effective Coordination by William H. Dutton (Oxford Internet Institute)
This paper outlines a framework for agenda setting that could help the Forum to ensure these processes identify and attend to the key substantive issues that merit discussion at the Forum. It is anchored on the view that most issues of Internet governance for development are being grappled with by many separate but interdependent actors and agencies at various levels. However, this creates a need to identify issues that are not ‘owned’, or not well understood, in order to facilitate the creation of bridges between actors and agencies trying to tackle the same or similar issues. It draws on various research initiatives at Oxford University’s Oxford Internet Institute (OII), particularly an international forum on Internet governance (see Dutton and Peltu 2005) and a series of seminars reflecting on civil society participation in the WSIS.
