In recent years, China has become more and more active in the field of Internet governance, even holding a major event, the World Internet Conference, in 2014. Internet governance in fact has many different aspects, including the management of infrastructures like servers, wires and routers, the development of technologies for the safety and efficiency of networks, or the definition of regulation for contents and networks.  It has domestic dimensions as well as international dimensions. This seminar is aimed at exploring these dimensions through different case studies.
