This line of our work explores the role and potential of Public Digital Infrastructure in supporting Digital Public Space that contributes to the full realization of digital rights.
In recent years, the main focus of EU digital policy has been the regulation of Big Tech. With this regulation in place, there is now a need to ensure the emergence of digital public spaces that can serve as alternatives to existing commercial platforms. This means that Europe needs an ambitious agenda for investing in Public Digital Infrastructure to provide the foundation for an open internet that underpins our democratic values and the health of our societies.
Our work in this area is guided by the goal of creating an ecosystem in which Digital Commons and digital public spaces can emerge and thrive.
