The Internet in Russia and China
co-organized by the Russia/NIS Center and the Center for Asian Studies,
The Internet in China and Russia is thriving, and a "digital culture" has emerged within their respective populations. Both countries' "netizens" are growingly airing their grievances on the Internet. Likewise, China and Russia have seen the emergence of successful homegrown Internet players, whose increasing confidence has incited both governments to create their own national digital instruments and policies. This one-day seminar will gather scholars, policymakers, and corporate representatives in examining the specificities of the Internet sector and the emergence of "networked civil societies" in China and Russia, and on a broader level the politicization of the Internet in both political and economic terms.
