Defining Internet Freedom

Defining Internet Freedom

“Transparency and accountability. Two words with profound significance this year as the US government considers relinquishing control over key aspects of Internet governance to the private sector. An immensely broad and rapidly growing area of law and policy, Internet governance focuses on the development and application of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programs that shape the evolution and use of the Internet. Rapidly growing with Internet governance has been the Internet’s dominant position in society, and the challenges that accompany it. While the Internet has become a liberating tool, it has also become a tool for bad actors and authoritarian regimes. It is thus vital that we, as a free society, define transparency and accountability in a way that ensures that the Internet can enable the public to engage in legitimate activities while inhibiting encroachment on such activities.”
