I’m a senior academic researcher in Political Sciences with the French National Scientific Research Center (CNRS), currently with LIP6 Laboratory at UPMC Sorbonne Universités, where I run in the NPA team a multi-disciplinary research activity focusing on Internet governance actors, issues, and institutionalization processes.
I’m a member of a number of scholarly associations, including the Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet). I participate to the European Network of Excellence in Internet Science (EINS) and to the Global Commission on Internet Governance’s (GCIG) Research Advisory Network.
As part of my volunteering activities in NGOs and civil society coalitions, I’ve also been actively promoting human rights in the digital environment since 1996 at the French, European and global levels. I co-chaired the WSIS Civil Society Human Rights caucus, am a member of the IGF Dynamic Coalition on Internet Rights and Principles, and I participated to the Council of Europe’s Committee of Experts on Rights of Internet Users (2012-2013).
I’m the author of numerous publications and regularly speaks at many high level conferences. I co-edited the book entitled “Governance, Regulations and Powers on the Internet” (Cambridge University Press, 2012).
