Abstract:

Since the middle of the 1990s, new challenges have emerged in terms of Internet regulation due to the exponential growth of the number of users, the range of data and services available online, and the extension of the network to the rest of the planet. This ongoing expansion has fed power rivalries between Internet governing organizations, national governments, online communities and merchants. It has also been perceived as a powerful tool by minority groups eager to get their voice heard or oppose totalitarian regimes. Faced with that phenomenal growth, the Chinese authorities have managed to shut down political opposition and control Internet content by elaborating a sound mix of high technology and ancestral political traditions. The government uses both technological filtering with the active complicity of foreign companies forced to abide by local rules in order to be allowed to do business in China, tens of thousands of Internet patrol agents who constantly scan exchange and Internet content, and a high level of self-censorship encouraged by severe legislation and suppression.
