How do you say 'Internet Governance' in your language?

Diplo would like to announce a new branch of our Internet Governance research project, coordinated by Ljupco Gjorgjinski, a recent graduate of Diplo’s Postgraduate Diploma in Diplomacy. This research will focus on the term “governance.” As you may be aware, the use of the term “governance” has become a significant factor in the deliberations on “Internet Governance.” While the term has various connotations in English, it does not even exist as a concept in some other languages. The first phase of this research will involve investigating how “governance” has been translated in the languages of the world in the context of the phrase “Internet governance.” We would appreciate it if you could send us the official translation of “Internet Governance” in a language you exercise command over, as well as a brief commentary on how the term governance has been translated/interpreted in this context. For instance, in some languages, the word used connotes “government,” “administration,” or “control.” In others, the meaning is more closely affiliated to “coordination.” Please send your comments to governance@diplomacy.edu. All relevant contributions will be included in the portal with proper acknowledgment.
