Enforcing Net Neutrality with Evidenced Based Policy Making

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The goal of this session is to provide an understanding of the current state of play in net neutrality in different countries and regions, discuss challenges that panelists have encountered, provide insight into the work of digital rights NGOs in making sure that the net neutrality provisions are enforced, talk about how the public can continue to be involved once net neutrality legislation is designed (e.g. submitting complaints to regulators, bringing cases, public advocacy). In this discussion, we hope to introduce more folks to tools that can be useful in their policy and advocacy work, e.g. internet measurement data like Measurement Lab, OONI and others. The discussion will cover how to think about working with measurement tools as part of advocacy and campaigns and overall be a conversation on strategic thinking with data in pursuit of evidence based policy making.
