June 15, 2011: Seminar organized by CoReNeT on "Managing the Internet and Society & The use of Social Media Tools on Internet" and Seminar on "The changing landscape of social media and rising concerns"  
 
 
  Seminar on "Managing the Internet and Society & The use of Social Media Tools on Internet" By Mr. Asif Kabani (Fellow, Internet Governance and Public Policy, Diplo Foundation, Switzerland)

Internet technology, unlike most communications media, is based on global, open and nonproprietary standards. The mix of open standards, diverse networks, and the growing ubiquity of digital devices makes the Internet a revolutionary force that undermines traditional media such as newspapers, broadcasting, and telephone systems, and challenges existing regulatory institutions based on national boundaries. The institutions governing the Internet are relatively new and open compared to traditional domestic and intergovernmental forums. Internet-based communication tools are enabling new forms of global governance and new ways to participate in these institutions and shape policy.
Internet governance affects a wide range of social and political issues. It affects who gets to participate in the online economy. It affects intellectual property – witness the attempts to control and regulate Internet-based communication in order to protect the copyrights and trademarks. It determines who gets access to the key technical resources, such as domain names and IP addresses, that make Internet service possible. It affects freedom of expression, forcing the world’s diverse policies to be harmonized. Internet governance provokes “high politic” debates over the global balance of power, as the US government holds unilateral control of critical Internet resources against the will of users and governments in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa especially Asia with China, India and Pakistan.
