The emerging Internet governance mosaic: connecting the pieces by William H. Dutton & Malcolm Peltu

The report highlights key Internet governance issues raised in relation to the authors’ three-tier typology. The distinctive design and governance characteristics that underpin the global Internet phenomenon are then outlined, to indicate valuable governance lessons that can be built on. The crucial need for balance in inherently political multi-stakeholder processes is then addressed. This is assisted by an analytical framework for understanding the dynamics underlying such processes, which involve outcomes from decisions taken by many actors within overlapping and interacting policy arenas. The conclusion recommends an approach to improving international coordination of Internet governance activities.
