Navigating the multi-stakeholder morass: The past, present and future of Internet governance by Chris
Disspain & Paul Szyndler
Abstract: 2013 marks the tenth anniversary of the United Nations’ World Summit on the Information
Society (WSIS). Although neither a forum focussed exclusively on “Internet governance” nor the
first discussion of the topic, WSIS marked the start of a global, decade-long debate on how the Internet
is, and should be, managed. A decade later, the Internet has grown exponentially, bringing about massive
cultural, social and economic change. And yet, many of the political and policy issues around its
governance largely remain the same and are regularly debated in a wide range of fora. This article draws

auDA Domain News - 23 December

***************************************************

***************************************************

Hello Australia!

This is the last Domain News for 2013. The Domain News will return no later than the week commencing 6
January, possibly earlier if the build-up of news gets too much over the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime there I will be posting regular updates to www.domainpulse.com and www.domainnews.com on
domain name issues, and on my own site, www.goldsteinreport.com, on other internet issues, as well as the
occasional domain name story.

And as the year draws to a close, I’d like to ask if you have any suggestions on how to improve things. Are
there stories or sources I miss that you think are worth including? Or any other suggestions? Feel free to
send me an email if you can think of anything.

And so I’d also like to say to have a merry Christmas and happy new year to you all, and thank auDA for their
support. As well as Kim Davies for providing the DNS list. This year marked the 11th year auDA has
subscribed on behalf of the Australian domain name community, and gave me the start for my business, for
which I’m very appreciative.

So see you in 2014!

David
