Digital Dilemmas

M. I. Franklin

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how internet technologies and related media have been affecting changes in how scholars, policymakers, and activists regard publics. It presents a case study that looks at how the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) has been emerging as a focal point for mobilization around a particular “transnational frame” that addresses and engages a different order of internet governance issues than hitherto; namely it looks at a project to put human rights at the heart of internet design, access, and use, and to do so as a global public issue.

Keywords:   internet technologies, Internet Governance Forum, internet governance, human rights
