China Reality Check: China's "Internet Sovereignty" Initiative: Origins and Consequences

March 1, 2016 • 12:00 – 1:30 pm EST
>Please join us for a discussion on China’s initiative to promote Internet sovereignty as a key governing concept of the global Internet. China has stepped up its efforts over the past year, most recently during the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen. If successful, this initiative could have wide consequences for not only the Internet, but also for a wide range of industries, the media, and information accessibility.
