Conclusion: Logics of Appropriate Governance in Internet Governance and Global Governance

  • Ben Wagner
Part of the Law, Governance and Technology Series book series (LGTS, volume 28)


The final chapter of this book looks more broadly at what can this book contribute to understandings of Internet Governance and the wider field of Global Governance. It argues that many of the trends found in Internet Governance such as the technification of regulatory demands or the expansion of disciplinary capacity over the Internet apply to many more areas of governance than just the governance of free expression.
