Séminaire de l’ISCC

European law and policy regarding net neutrality

12 septembre 2016, 17h à 19h, ISCC

Accueil > Évènements > Séminaires et ateliers réguliers > Séminaire de l’ISCC > 2016/2017



Chris T. Marsden will discuss the past, present and future of net neutrality regulation, enforcement and implementation, focussing on EU Regulation 2015/2120 and the Guidelines issued by BEREC on 30 August 2016. He will argue that the success of the Guidelines is dependent on the actions of the 28 national regulators and 9 observer regulators (one of whom actually wrote the majority of the Guidelines). He will draw comparison with the potential enforcement of net neutrality in other parts of the world.
