The possible establishment of a sovereign internet in Russia, European initiatives on Digital Sovereignty, and the conflict between China and the United States over Huawei equipment are rekindling the discussion on splinternets and the limits to global interconnectivity. 

Can the internet, the original network of networks, resist the contemporary strain, or was it built to accommodate these differences? In this talk three expert scholars on this topic, Daniel Lambach, Francesca Musiani and Fernanda Rosa, will give their views on the politics of global connection, its limitations, its future, and its discontent. With Niels ten Oever as moderator. Their talks will be discussed by one of the founders and prominent researchers of the fields of internet governance, Milton Mueller. This event is the third edition of the Geopolitics of Technology Series.

Please note: this event will take place via Zoom!
