We all know how important the Internet is, but we know less about how it is controlled, something fundamental to defending it. The term “Internet governance” refers specifically to the development and application of principles, norms, policies, procedures, and programs that have contributed to the evolution of the Internet and how it is used. To teach users more about Internet governance, Colombian NGO Fundación Karisma [3], with financial support from Mozilla, created this video [4]. Volunteers from Fundación Karisma and Global Voices translated the script into English.
