About Clément

Clément is a 2023 Fellow at Open Future. He is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Brussels School of Governance (BSOG-VUB). He holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF, Barcelona).

His most recent research focuses on the making process of EU digital policies, as well as negotiations and power play in Internet governance. His academic writing has been published in journals such as the Internet Policy Review, the Journal of Cyber Policy, the Journal of European Integration, and the Journal of European Public Policy. He is also the author of a series of policy reports – including a study for the European Parliament addressing the renewed debates on Internet fragmentation (2022).

During his Fellowship at Open Future, Clément unpacks the European Union’s policy approach in the field of internet standardization. Exploring the concretization of new digital sovereignty-oriented policies, Clément reflects on the current EU vision for the future of the open internet and its inconsistencies. Drawing on this analysis, he delineates key recommendations for national/EU policymakers in view of proposing an alternative policy approach that would be conducive to more openness, both at the technical and political levels.
