Inside the net neutrality debate

Written by Elda Brogi and Luc Steinberg. Posted in Current opinions, Opinions

Net neutrality is a hot topic at the moment, but it is not always clear what it actually is and why it matters. In this article, Elda Brogi and Luc Steinberg of the Centre for Media Pluralism and Freedom explain the concept of net neutrality, and discuss what implications the US Federal Communication Commission’s recent decision to repeal it could have for the maintenance of an open and free web in Europe and beyond.

Elda Brogi is Scientific Coordinator  and Luc Steinberg is Project Assistant at the Centre for Media Pluralism and Freedom (CMPF), a research programme devoted to develop innovative and relevant lines of research on media freedom and pluralism in Europe and beyond. It is housed at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, and is co-financed by the European Union.
