Net Neutrality

Network neutrality—the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all data that travels over their networks equally—is a principle that EFF strongly supports. However, the power to enforce equal treatment on the Internet can easily become the power to control the Internet in less beneficent ways. Some people have condemned last week’s court decision to reject the bulk of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Open Internet Order as a threat to Internet innovation and…

Help us design the new IG building!

Colleagues, you may recall the IG building, which has served us well as an IG awareness- building tool over the last 10 years. It was sketched 10 years ago during one of the long WGIG meetings. The building reflected the Internet of 2004 when, for example, Twitter did not exist and social media was just emerging. How different should the new 2014 IG building be? Should it be more solid and sophisticated?…

Enhancing Open Governance Advocacy for Internet Governance in Tunisia

Tunisia has portrayed itself as a model of Internet governance (IG) in the MENA region by holding various IG debates with multiple stakeholders (WSIS 2005). By engaging in the Open Governance Partnership (OGP) initiative in 2011, Tunisia sought to promote transparent governance by committing to respect and deliver the action plan of the Open Governance Declaration.

To establish a new road map for more inclusive IG in Tunisia, policymakers must devise institutional reforms that target…
