Description:

Does the global diffusion of the Internet signify the final end of the state's ability to control society, or is the state on the contrary maintaining or even strengthening its hold of society? The goal of this ISR Forum is to reexamine and ultimately problematize this debate by discussing what actors are controlling what aspects of Internet usage, and under what conditions. Myriam Dunn Cavelty unravels in her contribution the complexity of public–private partnerships in Internet control.
