Abstract

As the debates on how to govern the Internet continue, the actual outcomes of digital access have to be considered when discussing how to represent and govern such a global system. This point of view discusses the reasons for considering the Multistakeholder model currently being proposed as a step backwards as the issues that actual usage of the Internet by individuals and communities cannot be dealt with by it, and instead is just entrenching the interests of both powerful nation-states and corporate actors in a way that furthers non-democratic control of a global resource.
