The Internet Governance Lab was launched in 2015 in order to advance evidence-based research on Internet infrastructure and governance at American University. The program is overseen by faculty from both American University’s School of Communication and School of International Service. The topics of Internet governance and architecture are guided by three faculty co-directors: Dr. Derrick Cogburn of SIS, Dr. Laura DeNardis of SOC and Dr. Nanette Levinson of SIS.
