Re-constituting Global Cyber-Law

At least since the early 1990s there has been a spirited ‘cyberlaw’ debate, which led to important insights about governance, regulation, and law in the digital era. But existing cyberlaw scholarship neglects, somewhat curiously, the Internet’s inherently global aspiration and the corresponding need to develop legal mechanisms to keep key institutions of global internet governance in check. To prevent regulatory fragmentation, we need to re-constitute global cyberlaw as complements to national regulation and (rare) transnational arrangements.
