International internet commission headed by Bildt

Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was named as the head of an international commission to investigate the future of internet in the wake of the revelations of Edward Snowden.

The two year inquiry will be set up by the British thinktank Chatham house and the Canadian Center for International Governance and Innovation, and was announced at Davos today.

Bildt tells the news agency TT that it is about the freedom of the internet and on the internet. "There are regimes that want to control the web in a way that would be very dangerous," he said.
