Governance in international technical standards-making: a tripartite model


  • Dominique Lazanski


All of us enjoy the daily benefits of the mobile internet and other global telecommunications and data services. But the delivery of consistent and reliable internet and telecommunication services relies on the development and implementation of international and interoperable technical standards. This paper discusses governance in international technical and internet standards-making. A theory of governance of standards-making through three modes — namely multilateral, multistakeholder and emergent —is developed. The most efficient and effective approach to governance of international standards-making will be looked at using a theory of governance of the commons and common pool resources.
