EPISODE DESCRIPTION

The internet has become as much a part of our daily lives as driving and eating.

But who actually controls the internet?

The International Telecommunications Union or the ITU is the United Nations agency responsible for information and communication technologies.

Recently the ITU hosted the World Conference on International Communication where 178 countries met to update a treaty on internet security originally signed in 1988.

However, many people have voiced their concern that this conference was just an opportunity for powerful nations and multi-national corporations to seize control of the internet.

2SER’s Joel Moss spoke to Associate Law Professor, Melissa de Zwart, from the University of Adelaide, about the World Conference and the fight for internet control.
