Abstract

“Freedom” is an elusive concept. The understanding of what constitutes freedom varies between countries and cultures. “Internet freedom” is an equally amorphous notion that lends itself well to multiple normative interpretations of what the Internet should represent. In Internet governance debates, myriad actors are invested in defining the meaning of “freedom” in relation to Internet-specific technologies.
