The Internet and Communication Policy Center is a research center of the Department of Political, Social and Communciation Sciences of the University of Salerno. ICPC activities focus on the policy dimensions of Internet and Communication, addressing some of the most relevant and strategic transformative processes and issues of our time by different perspectives and research lines. Its goal is to collect and exchange theoretical approaches, methodologies, analyses and data concerning public policies and private practices impacting on Internet and on media governance ecosystem. ICPC is an interdisciplinary research center, gathering scholars from a wide range of academic disciplines: political science, social science, economics, law, linguistics, information sciences, communication and media studies.
The Center aims to investigate Internet and Communication policies at the intersection of law, technology, norms, and markets. It fosters research and education designed to inform and advance policy-making and rule-making in communication and information field. The Internet and Communication Policy Center, through seminars, workshops, publications, online resources and shared databases, aims at a better understand of the ways States and non-State actors interplay in defining, configuring and shaping Internet and communication systems world wide.
The ICPC further seeks to promote cooperation between academics, innovators, policymakers and businesses, in order to establish the scientific foundation for policy, legislation and regulation to address Internet and Communication. The ICPC aims to make a contribution toward sound political choices on the future of Internet through research, policy advice, capacity-building and debate.
It provides researchers, governments, regulators, operators, multilateral institutions, development agencies, community organizations, trade unions and civil society organizations with the information and analysis required to develop innovative and appropriate policies. It also aims at producing economies of scale in data collection and analyses, in order to address the challenges posed by big data science through the optimization of scientific strategies adopted by members.
