How we work

In the Internet’s short history, we have already witnessed attempts to shut down or limit discussions on key issues such as network neutrality, or to reframe the implications of policies, such as those that relate to cybersecurity. What we learn repeatedly is that the best and most lasting solutions are ones that we arrive at through cooperation and mutual respect, that are rooted in principle, and that open the door to innovation.
