"Save the Internet: How to recognise a Regulatory Threat, and what you can do about It"
Rising tides of anti-Internet Regulations by authoritarian governments continue to threaten and weaken the core properties of Trust, Interoperability, Decentralization, Openness, and Neutrality (TIDON) that have insured the growth and development of the Internet through the years. The Internet Society (ISOC) has recently developed the Impact Assessment Toolkit (IAT) to help Digital Citizens and Internet Progressives in better evaluating and assessing the (potential) impact of certain Internet-related regulation on these core Internet Properties. In this Workshop, we lead participants through the way this Toolkit operates, teaching them how to assess the impact of Internet-related Regulations in their various jurisdictions on the growth and future of the Internet.
We consider a Regulatory Case Study in this Workshop, and work participants through an interactive assessment of the Case Study, using the IAT.
