Conference paper "Internet interconnection: how economic sociology can inform the discourse on internet governance"
In my dissertation I analyse the social dimensions of internet interconnection. Part of my theoretical framework is a research perspective that has been coined Economics of Convention (EoC). At this year's Global Internet Governance Academic Network's symposium I presented some of the building blocks of this perspective such as the notion of uncertainty as a starting point for the analysis of human action and a plurality of so-called orders of worth. I explain how this perspective can help us understand social practices that underlie how the internet is being maintained as a network of networks.
