NEXt generation Techno-social and Legal Encryption Access and Privacy

The NEXTLEAP Project

In the wake of the Snowden revelations, public trust in the Internet has eroded.

The primary motivation of NEXTLEAP is to create, validate, and deploy communication and computation protocols that can serve as pillars for a secure, trust-worthy, annotable and privacy-respecting Internet that ensures citizens fundamental rights. For this purpose NEXTLEAP will develop an interdisciplinary internet science of decentralisation that provides the basis on which these protocols will be built.

"WE NEED TO ENCODE OUR VALUES NOT JUST IN WRITING BUT IN THE STRUCTURE OF THE INTERNET, AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT I INVITE EVERYONE AROUND THE WORLD, TO JOIN AND PARTICIPATE IN."

Edward Snowden
