Event Details


The “invisible” infrastructures of the Internet’s lower layers – addresses, protocols, domain names – are increasingly used to serve political objectives different from the purpose they were initially designed for. Are we currently experiencing a “turn to infrastructure” for Internet governance?

This conference explores the political, social and technical implications of this recent tendency, by focusing on a particularly controversial aspect of Internet infrastructure: the Domain Name System, the Internet’s “phone book.”
