Google’s announcement that it will stop censoring results from its Chinese search engine is just the latest development on the internet freedom agenda and highlights the increased dedication from the public and private sectors to preserve the openness of what has become one of the most salient forms of communication. On March 24, the Center for a New American Security hosted an event on Capitol Hill on global internet freedom, which also marked the launch of the Senate Global Internet Freedom Caucus. At the event, several senators gave remarks, in addition to a panel of experts representing the public and private sectors.
