The chapter explores the clash between China and Internet governance institutions including the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers and the Regional Internet Registries. It presents issues related to China’s attempt to maintain its Great Firewall between its domestic Internet operations and the globalized operations affecting the people living outside China.
