                         =======================
                             Announcing the Launch
                                   of the
                           Internet Governance Project
                           www.InternetGovernance.org
                         =======================

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Internet Governance Project
(IGP), a multi-university partnership to analyze global Internet policy
issues.  IGP's research agenda is closely related to the on-going United
Nations' review of Internet Governance.

IGP's member institutions include two research centers at Syracuse University:
    - The Convergence Center at the School of Information Studies
    - The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School
and one research center at the Georgia Institute of Technology:
    - The Internet and Public Policy Project (IP3) at the School of Public
      Policy

As its first project IGP is providing the United Nations' Information and
Communication Technologies Task Force (UN ICT TF) a detailed analysis of
global policy regimes. The resulting study will provide a fact-based "map" of
existing global rules for the Internet and the institutions that make those
rules.

IGP's research team includes:
- MILTON MUELLER, Professor, Syracuse University School of Information Studies
- JOHN R. MATHIASON, Adjunct Professor, Syracuse University Maxwell School of
   Citizenship and Public Affairs
- HANS KLEIN, Assoc. Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology, School of
   Public Policy
- LEE MCKNIGHT, Assoc. Professor, Syracuse University School of Information
   Studies
- MARC HOLITSCHER, Lecturer, Institut für Politikwissenschaft der Universität
   Zürich
