The Internet has become a domain of strategic importance for Europe. It
affects nearly every aspect of our lives. Our stance towards the
Internet is underpinned by the same values, priorities and interests as
elsewhere, and therefore our aim is to maintain an Open
Internet<https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/node/1343>
.

As Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner
for the Digital Agenda,
said<http://ec.europa.eu/commission_2010-2014/kroes/en/content/internet-governance-i-want-your-views>:
"This digital age needs a new social contract. Decisions that affect the
Internet shouldn't be taken just by politicians, companies or technicians
alone, without any reference to common principles".

With this in mind, we are playing an active role in all
the relevant international fora and have put forward the idea of a Global
Internet Policy
Observatory<https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/news/commission-plans-guide-through-global-internet-policy-labyrinth>,
in order to help more people participate in the governance of the Internet.

You may want to read the background
document<https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/sites/digital-agenda/files/131007%20public%20questions%20formatted.pdf>
for
an overview of the main challenges we see in this field.

We are interested in your ideas on how the Internet should be governed and
the role which Europe should play. We would like to hear from you by
Friday, 8 November 2013.
