Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality (DCNN)

Introduction

Internet Openness is an appealing and multifaceted expression which encompasses several policy and technology areas and core internet principles, including Net Neutrality, Internet Generativity, Interoperability and Device Neutrality.  

The IGF Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality (DCNN) was created to help provide clarity to the notions mentioned above. At its core, network neutrality determines the extent to which Internet traffic management practices may be regarded as legitimate, insofar as they do not restrict end-users’ access to content, applications and services in a discriminatory fashion based on operators commercial interests.  

Action plan

In view of the various ways to approach these multi-faceted topics, the IGF DCNN was established to foster a multi-stakeholder approach, providing a discussion arena aimed at analysing the various problems solution and interests at stake, contributing to the elaboration of best practices, policies, and regulations.  

The goal of the IGF DCNN is to educate, inform and disseminate information on current trends and policy developments with regard to Internet openness themes.  

Website and Mailing list

Beyond its website (www.internetopenness.info), which provides basic information on the works developed by the dynamic coalition (e.g. articles, reports, drafted either collectively or individually by members of the coalition), the official mailing list of the coalition (see: http://mailman.edri.org/mailman/listinfo/nncoalition) will allow all members to discuss these issues in an open and interactive fashion.
