IGOPNET participated at the Symposium on Internet-Driven Developments: Structural Changes and Tipping Points Towards a Global Network of Internet and Society Centers

Symposium on Internet-Driven Developments: Structural Changes and Tipping Points

Towards a Global Network of Internet and Society Centers

Together with seven international co-hosts, on December 6-8, 2012, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society convened an international Symposium on Internet-Driven Developments: Structural Changes and Tipping Points (SCTP). The gathering brought together representatives from Internet and society research centers located in 22 countries across 5 continents. Mayo Fuster Morell (Berkman fellow & member of IGOPNET) took part in the symposium. This highly collaborative and participatory event marked the launch of a nascent global network of interdisciplinary centers with a focus on Internet and society.

In addition to encouraging participants to build on past cooperative efforts and expand existing partnerships, the December 2012 gathering yielded a number of ideas for next steps and collaborative projects that are summarized in the final report. Harvard Law School has also published information about this exciting event.

Moving forward, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet & Society in Berlin has kindly agreed to work closely with the Berkman team and the other co-hosts to facilitate the next round of conversations and work hand-in-hand with participants to advance ideas surfaced at the SCTP Symposium. The ongoing dialogue, which will involve additional organizations, will focus on both specific activities for organizations within the network and the global vision for the network as a whole.

The gathering was made possible with the generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Ford Foundation.
