UN General Secretar Gutres suggests the debate on the future of the internet on the site of companies, instead of democracy and multilateralism to strong
In June 2020, UN General Secretar Antonio GutRes gave one "Timetable for digital cooperation" out. The goal was a new control mechanism for the Internet. This document goes back to a confrontation of the United Nations, who should have the power on the opposite and art design of the Internet.
However, the planning of the UN General Secretar contains no indication of the background of this debate. There are no alternative models for the administration of the Internet or for decisions about its future. Instead, the document contains a vague proposal, which already gives ways to influence the future of the internet from dominant position anyway. This vague model sketching the Roadmap of the UN General Secretar will look at the Internet administration as "Multi-Share Manager Model" (MultiStakeHolder Model).
The General Secretar not only strongers the multi-shareholder principle (multi-stakeholderism) – an idea that had previously provoked serious criticism – he also introduces this principle through the backtime. The roadmap not only ignores the criticism of this model, but also known alternatives. These alternatives reflect a process that complies with the more democratic and participative origin of the Internet and the original vision for their future development.
The fight about "Internet governance" lasts at the United Nations for at least 15 years. Among the most important events are the two World Summit to the Information Society (WSIS), which were held in 2003 by the United Nations in Geneva and 2005 in Tunis, as well as the controversy of 2015 on the ten-year review of progress on the way to the objectives of the WSIS 2003 and of the WSIS 2005. Was aimed at "a person-oriented, integrative and development-oriented information society".
At the controversy, on the one hand, the desire of many developing countries among the UN member states according to a joint Internet administration, where all states can participate equally, a multilateral approach. Multilateralism is a basic principle of the United Nations, which is anchored in the UN Charter.
The Roadmap of the Departing UN General Secretary replaces an administration of governance, which is required by the United Nations represented by the United Nations at WSIS events and committed to the people-oriented perspective, by a company-enhancing lending principle ("Corporate Empowering Governance"), that as "Multi-shareholder principle" ("multi-stakeholderism") referred to as.
In short, the timetable proposed by the UN General Secretar promises to combine all people around the world with the Internet and have problems arguing through artificial intelligence and other areas that can be accompanied by internet development.
In essence, however, the roadmap suggests creating a new means of controlling the Internet. Through the proposed administrative mechanism, those who gain power on decisions on the present and future of the Internet were the same ones "Multi-shareholder" be called.
