The Value of Internet Openness in Times of Crisis

The Value of Internet Openness in Times of Crisis

This volume explores the Value of Internet Openness in Times of Crisis, and is the official outcome of the Coalitions on Net Neutrality and on Community Connectivity of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum. This work stems from the consideration that the COVID-19 pandemic has harshly highlighted the fundamental importance of Internet access, and the total exclusion that the unconnected face in times of crises. Internet connectivity, has now emerged as the backbone of all social, political and economic interactions along with services during the Covid-19 pandemic. The current crisis brings to light that digital infrastructures play an essential role, shaping our development. The sustainability of such development relies on Internet openness and this book offers an ample range of perspective exploring why it is more crucial than ever to guarantee that Internet stays a smooth-running, open, and accessible common good.
