On Monday (10/3), Ang Peng Hwa, Dean of the School of Communication and Information at NTU, will be giving a talk entitled “The UN Working Group on Internet Governance: An Insider’s Perspective.” (Yes, a practice run for his keynote at IR 6.0, I’m sure.) The talk is at 2pm in 545 O’Brian. I would encourage anyone interested in policy and the internet to attend. (RSVP to Pat at prandall@b…, so she can get a head count, I guess.)
Here’s a quick bio, stolen from the IR 6.0 Agenda:
Ang Peng Hwa is Professor of Media Management and Law at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. A lawyer by training, he worked as a journalist before going on to pursue a Masters in communication management at the University of Southern California and a PhD in mass media at Michigan State University. He is a central committee member of the Consumers’ Association of Singapore and is the legal adviser to the Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore. He has consulted for government and private bodies in Singapore, as well as international agencies such as the United Nations Development Program on law and policy issues regarding the Internet.
