Abstract

Until recently, Internet governance was a relatively obscure topic in most technology policy agendas in Latin America. Debates were limited to specialized government agencies, a few academics, and a handful of NGOs. In mid-2013, revelations about widespread surveillance of Internet communications dramatically transformed conversations about the politics of internet policymaking. Today Internet governance issues are discussed at the highest policy levels and are prominently covered by the mainstream media, while key events such as NETmundial (April 2014) are attended by high-level representatives from across the region.
