Internet Governance the WSIS summit

category international | sci-tech | news report author Monday November 14, 2005 14:24author by iosaf Report this post to the editors

This week the second and final meeting of the "World Summit on the Information Society" takes place in Tunis, starting on Wednesday.

Present will be the current "web masters" the USA and the principle partners who created the www most notably Switzerland (who co-organised with the UN the first phase), and a plethora of states who don't allow their citizens freedom of speech or association.

The UN wants to change the "US webmaster" balance in favour of one of four options which would give control to UN appointed bodies.

Many other states, just want to stop the internet.
