Transforming Global Information and Communication Markets

This chapter, which provides a preliminary blueprint for future information and communication technology (ICT) governance policies, uses theory of how global governance changes to connect shifts in United States policy to global policy decisions. It explains the principles for governance at the inflection point, which are high-level theories about cause and effect that organize problem solving through governance. The chapter then emphasizes ten norms that implement the principles and advance “trading rights” as an approach to problem solving through specific policies and delegations of authority. It suggests that there are strong political and economic motives to act, and so governments will affect the ICT infrastructure in some important ways.

Keywords:   ICT, global governance, United States policy, global policy, inflection point, trading rights, ICT infrastructure
