You may have noticed the hiatus in our coverage in July and early August. The reason? IGP has moved.
After more than a decade at Syracuse University, the Internet Governance Project is now part of the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The move comes as a consequence of the Georgia Tech’s recruitment of Dr. Milton Mueller, who departs from the Syracuse School of Information Studies to join the School of Public Policy at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. Postdoctoral researcher Dr. Brenden Kuerbis, one of IGP’s key contributors, will also be working for Georgia Tech as of mid-August.
IGP will continue to be independently funded and operated center that bridges scholarship and participation in Internet institutions. Yet at Georgia Tech’s School of Public Policy, IGP will be in a much richer environment for public policy-related research and analysis. We will be able to work more closely with one of IGP’s original partners, Dr. Hans Klein, and we will have stronger connections to Tech’s world-renowned computer science researchers, policy researchers in other schools such as Peter Swire, and international relations scholars. Plans are underway for a seminar series and workshops in the fall of 2015 and the spring of 2016. Stay tuned.
