Rivista italiana di informatica e diritto -an on line open access magazine edited by Cnr-Igsg- dedicates a special issue to Internet governance and digital transformation, calling on scholars and experts to share and deepen the many issues that today impact on the evolution of the Internet ecosystem and its governance, in its various aspects (technical, legal, economic, social and political).

The term "Internet governance" refers to the rules, policies, standards and best practices that coordinate and shape the ecosystem of the Net. It has been used since the very beginning, mainly with reference to unique Internet identifiers, such as domain names and IP addresses. The rise of new and increasingly numerous implications of an economic, political and social nature, affecting every sector of contemporary society and all closely related to the so-called digital transformation, has determined the current nature of Internet governance, a broad and multidisciplinary research field.

The topics discussed on Internet Governance debates are part of a global reflection centered on the development of the digital world: global connectivity, public goods, inclusion, capacity building, human rights, artificial intelligence, trust and security, global cooperation, models and geopolitics of Internet Governance.

This is a field of study, as broad as it is complex, in which different but complementary skills interact, all necessary to investigate the rules, policies, standards and practices of global cyberspace.
