2nd Report of the Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality

One of the purposes of the Dynamic Coalition is "the elaboration of a model framework on network neutrality, which can be deemed as consistent with international human-rights standards".
This model should be elaborated through an open, collaborative and multi-stakeholder process such as the one utilised by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in order to craft its “Request for Comments”.
Two comment periods were established in order to provide all interested stakeholders with the opportunity to comment the draft model. The model framework was initiated and has been stimulated by the Council of Europe and will be communicated to the Council of Europe Steering Committee on Media and Information Society (CDMSI), in December.

This session analysed the instrumental role played by the network neutrality (NN) principle to guarantee the full enjoyment of human rights and foster a competitive market, and focused on concrete solutions aimed at implementing this principle. The panellists underlined the risks of discriminatory Internet-traffic management(ITM) practices and suggested technical and policy “remedies” that may be usedto mitigate, avoid or prevent traffic discrimination. Subsequently, the panel analysed a selection of national approaches aimed at safeguarding NN, identifying potential loopholes and pitfalls that may jeopardise Internet-users’ full enjoyment of fundamental rights and compromise the free flow of information.
