On today’s Heavy Networking we explore the intersection of policy, politics, and technology with the Internet Governance Project (IGP).
A non-profit hosted at Georgia Tech’s School of Public Policy, the IGP examines how technology and government policies affect critical Internet issues such as free expression, individual rights, and cybersecurity.
The IGP produces research, writes commentary, and participates in global bodies such as ICANN and Regional Internet Address Registries (RIRs).
The IGP connects technology experts and policy experts to help bridge gaps in understanding between these two communities, with the goal of influencing outcomes in global governance and standards bodies.
Our guests are Milton Mueller, Ph.D., Director of the IGP and a professor at Georgia Tech; and Brenden Kuerbis, a post-doctoral researcher at IGP.
We discuss issues such as technology nationalism (think the US vs. Huawei) and its affects on trade and technology development, cyber-attribution of state-sponsored attacks, privacy and GDPR, and more.
