About Us

The Networked Communications Governance Lab, led by Dr. Sara Bannerman, Canada Research Chair in Communication Policy and Governance, seeks to deepen our understanding of the global networked governance of communication and creativity.  Communication is increasingly regulated by technologies and private organizations, as well as by governments.  Governance by a plurality of actors is known as networked governance.  Networked governance raises important questions about who governs, and how regulators are kept accountable.  The Networked Communication Governance Lab works to describe and critically assess the networked governance of communication and creativity.
