This special issue makes an argument for, and illustrates, the
applicability of a science and technology studies (STS) informed
approach to internet governance research. The conceptual framework put
forward in this editorial and the articles composing this issue add to
the mainstream internet governance scholarship by unpacking macro
questions of politics and power. They do so through the analysis of the
mundane and taken-for-granted practices and discourses that constitute
the design, regulation, maintenance, and use of both technical and
institutional arrangements of internet governance. Together, this body
of work calls to rethink how we conceptualise both internet and governance.
