Big tech accountability? Read how we got here in  The Closing of the Net 

Scott Davidson, Public affairs practice and lobbying inequality: Reform and regulation of the influence game

in Journal of Public Affairs 22 August 2017 (published by Wiley). 

"It is reasonable to assume that all democratic systems will reflect to
some extent the economic power relationships between different classes
and groups. In particular, large corporations are cited as being able
to dominate decision‐making environments through deploying their
superior resources (Dinan & Miller, 2007). This influence of financially
motivated interests has been argued to have frustrated the wider public
interest on issues such as environmental sustainability, obesity,
alcohol abuse and Internet freedoms (Duhe & Sriramesh, 2009;
Gornall, 2014; Horten, 2013; Miller & Harkins, 2010)."

Iptegrity in brief

 

Iptegrity.com is the website of Dr Monica Horten. I’ve been analysing analysing digital policy since 2008. Way back then, I identified how issues around rights can influence Internet policy, and that has been a thread throughout all of my research. I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing. I am on the Advisory Council of the Open Rights Group.  I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine.
