From Internet Governance to Digital Political Economy

Date(s) - 17/10/2022 - 18/10/2022
9:00 am - 5:00 pm


The Internet Governance Project (IGP)’s 7th Annual Conference convenes scholars, practitioners, and government officials under the theme From Internet Governance to Digital Political Economy.

The conference’s objective is to reframe analysis of Internet governance as digital political economy. That approach provides a more systematic understanding of the forces driving digital policy issues and a better grasp of both the obstacles to solutions and the feasible paths forward.

The global governance of the internet is now inseparable from the governance of digital trade, international currency and investment, military conflict and competition in cyberspace, regulation of platform industries, AI applications, and industrial policy debates about semiconductors, 5G, and other digital technologies.

As the communications infrastructure that supports the ecosystem, the internet is very important, but its policy and governance can no longer be considered in isolation from these other digital developments.

Join us in The Hague October 17-18 for a field-reshaping conference that can bridge the artificial disciplinary and topical divisions, with political economy as a stronger basis for public policy analysis and intervention.

October 17 – 18, 2022, 9:30 am – 4:30 p.m. CEST
The Hague Conference Centre New Babylon
Anna van Buerenplein 29, 2595 DA Den Haag, Netherlands
