Is the Internet broken? The answer to this question may have major implications for economies, communications and politics both at a global and state level. Mark Raymond, a Research Fellow in Global Security at CIGI, visits Inside the Issues this week for a fascinating discussion on Internet governance. Offering a breakdown of the major issues involved, three "baskets" of Internet governance are discussed: intellectual property, civil liabilities/privacy, and Internet security. Raymond notes that it's important for Canada to think about what kind of Internet we want to see — potentially improving on the multi-stakeholder model — in preparation for some of the major international meetings on the horizon that could have a major impact on the structure of the Internet as we know it.
