Last Monday's event in Washington DC. ​ A healthy discussion, well attended
due to it being on the eve of State of the Net,  includes contributions
from Milton Mueller and George Sadowsky. Audio is a little rough for the
first two mins, but then improves.

26 January 2015* the *Greater Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society
<http://www.isoc-dc.org/>* (ISOC-DC) and the *Institute of International
Economic Policy <http://www.gwu.edu/~iiep/> *(IIEP) presented *Governments
and Internet Governance
*. Despite their long experience in global and domestic governance,
policymakers from many nations struggle to find their way in Internet
governance. On one hand, only governments can join international
organizations such as the UN or WTO. However, the same governments do not
have a privileged role in Internet governance institutions such as the
Internet Governance Forum (IGF); the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN); or the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF),
where governments are just one among many actors. Meanwhile, many other
stakeholders are increasingly concerned about increased participation by
governments in the technical infrastructure and governance bodies that
underpin the Internet. This event will examine several different
perspectives on participation by governments in Internet governance.
