Video: Marietje Schaake's message for the National Informatics Congress in Ankara


The question of the future of the Internet is a timely one. Current regulations are outdated because of increased market liberalisation and the introduction of information and communication technologies. Some governments, who fear a loss of control, are seeking to counter developments that drain their powers. No single centralised body should have the control of the internet; the current multi-stakeholder model is the best. In talks with future member states and other states digital freedoms should be addressed by the EU.
