The Center for Global Communication Studies (CGCS) at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, announces a call for proposals for its Internet Policy Observatory to organizations and individuals conducting research on the conditions, processes, and stakeholders that drive the development of internet policies at the national, regional, and international level. This call is particularly relevant to organizations and individuals interested in what countries do to influence the global internet, what we are calling the ‘foreign policies of the internet’. Particular attention will be paid to proposals that look beyond the policies and narratives of European and North American actors to examine how ‘emerging’ actors and countries are influencing the debate.
In August 2016, the Center for Global Communication Studies (CGCS) merged with the Project for Advanced Research in Global Communication (PARGC) to form the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC). This archival website serves as a record of the events, publications, and other materials created by and for CGCS from 2006-2016. For more information about current work, please visit the websites of CARGC or the Annenberg School for Communication.
