Zur Lage des Internets in Deutschland

At 10:00 a.m. CEST, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulz and Prof. Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann, together with the German UNESCO Commission, will present the report on the assessment of internet development in Germany. The publication is part of the  XIII. Deutschen Internet Governance Forum (IGF-D).
Participation is possible via this link.
In the discussion, central findings as well as consequential recommendations for action for different actors will be put up for discussion. In which areas is Germany already on the right track and is there room for improvement? What must a new federal government do to ensure that the internet and the digital landscape in Germany can be further developed in a rights-based, open, accessible and multi-actor manner? Which other actors can contribute to digitalisation in Germany gaining additional momentum and which potholes must be avoided along the way? How should the expansion of participation opportunities in Germany be designed?
The report in English and German can be downloaded here after the event.

About the Study

The team of the HBI conducted the study on the assessment of internet development in Germany on behalf of the German Commission for UNESCO. In doing so, the team applied the UNESCO Internet Universality Indicators and assessed the current state of the Internet in terms of human rights, openness, accessibility and multi-actor participation. The study formulates recommendations on how digitisation can be further developed in Germany. Further information on the project can be found here.
