The AWII joins the Global Network of Internet & Society Research Centers (NoC)
The Arab World Internet Institute is glad to become part of the Global Network of Internet and Society Research Centers (NoC).
The NoC was launched by a group of academic centers in 2012 in recognition of the lack of internationally coordinated research and engagement activities in issues concerning the Internet and related technologies. The NoC is a collaborative initiative among academic institutions with a focus on interdisciplinary research on the development, social impact, policy implications, and legal issues concerning the Internet. This collective aims to increase interoperability between participating centers in order to stimulate the creation of new cross-national, cross-disciplinary conversation, debate, teaching, learning, and engagement regarding the most pressing questions around new technologies, social change, and related policy and regulatory developments.
The full list of the NoC members is available at http://networkofcenters.net/centers and it includes centers like Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, MIT Center for Civic Media and Oxford Internet Institute at University of Oxford.
