Oxford Internet Institute and Berkman Forum
The Oxford Internet Institute and the Berkman Center have organized a public panel and forum, "The Struggle over Internet Governance: Searching for Common Ground," to bring together knowledgeable and experienced participants with a broad range of perspectives to discuss issues concerning Internet governance. The dual-edged nature of the Internet is becoming increasingly evident around the world, with the substantial benefits for educational, social, economic, business and entertainment purposes being offset by Internet-based cybercrime, pornography, spam and computer viruses. As a result, governments, industry, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and various civil society groups and activists are seeking to influence and participate in the shaping and control of Internet.
