Class Geography & Internet Access
The institutional aspect of access and accessibility is one deeply rooted in the concept of the digital divide, across socio-economic groups, and geographic distribution. Control of the internet, its governing elements, especially through the lens of current events, is a central part of this conversation. How do disadvantaged users get internet access without acceding to the intrusive surveillance practices of certain Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and governments, particularly in non-democratic contexts? Our panelists will discuss whether governance at the institutional level around the world can play a role in breaking the cycle of neglect, while also safeguarding important rights like privacy.
