Dear Michel Bauwens,

The Centre for Internet & Society (CIS) and the Observer Research
Foundation in association with Centre for Global Communication Studies,

December 12, 2015.

neutrality is understood and addressed in a particular context. Indeed, the
factors driving the net neutrality debate, the way in which governments are

The topic of net neutrality is not limited to a technical debate and brings
together a number of issues including the right to access, the right to
freedom of expression, fair competition practices, and privacy.

This conference seeks to bring together domain experts, industry,

neutrality is understood in different contexts, how it is being addressed
from a policy point of view, what the varying public dialogues around net
neutrality are, and what role civil society can play in influencing the
