Abstract: This thesis provides an answer to the following research question: ‘What internet governance discourse was constructed and managed by Xi Jinping during the Wuzhen Summit?’ It is found that Xi Jinping and his administration draw from various background assumptions to construct their discourse. These assumptions see the internet as a geographic territory that is subject to the same geopolitical dynamics as ‘real space’, and see governments as well as states as being the only actors capable of enabling the successful future development of the internet.
