Abstract

Portuguese Abstract: This small text poses the question whether the analytical framework of Global Administrative Law (GAL) is fit to describe and understand Internet Regulation. In order to answer, it starts by summarizing the idea of GAL and its purpose. The working and regulation of the Internet are briefly described before concluding that although GAL has some utility, Internet law is still mainly national law. Este artigo analisa brevemente a utilidade dos quadros conceptuais do Direito Administrativo Global (DAG) para descrever a regulação da Internet. Para o efeito, começa por fazer um pequeno enquadramento do DAG e do respectivo propósito. De seguida, descreve o funcionamento e regulação da Internet, antes de concluir que apesar de o DAG ter alguma utilidade, o Direito da Internet é ainda uma realidade regulada fundamentalmente a nível nacional.
