Freedom of connection, freedom of expression: The changing legal and regulatory ecology shaping the Internet

Freedom of connection, freedom of expression: The changing legal and regulatory ecology shaping the Internet

This report provides a new perspective on the social and political dynamics behind the threats to expression. It develops a conceptual framework on the ‘ecology of freedom of expression’ for discussing the broad context of policy and practice that should be taken into consideration in discussions of this issue.

This framework draws on an original synthesis of empirical research and case studies of selected technical, legal and regulatory trends.
