This workshop is connected to the efforts of La Quadratur du Net and the Net Neutrality Coalition to create a model law on net neutrality. The issue of regulating the internet has many facets and needs critical reflection. But no regulation means the forces of the marked define the rules of play and terms of access.

We want to learn from the mistakes of others. Mostly the discussion will be based on the legal texts, but all input from the actual situation within the networks, in the countries economies or on the consumer side is very welcome.
