Another issue of the Discussion Paper that we would like to debate is the architecture of the Internet.
Do calls to withdraw inside national Internet borders or diversification of physical infrastructure in response to events this summer - which have made everybody aware of the power of what can be done with the internet - pose a risk to the 'One Internet' principle?
To what extent are the current debates on internet governance sufficiently focusing on who controls key physical and logical resources (e.g. where does the majority of the traffic go to, who controls major Internet exchange points, how do key standardisation efforts influence the balance of power among stakeholders?)
How can the risk be limited that separate network infrastructures co-exist or can be isolated from one another, thus undermining the One Internet principle?
What are your thoughts on these questions?
