In the wake of the Snowden revelations, public trust in the Internet as eroded. Yet as put by Snowden “We need to encode our values not just in writing but in the structure of the Internet, and it’s something that I hope, I invite everyone … around the world, to join and participate in.” The primary motivation of NEXTLEAP is to create an interdisciplinary internet science of decentralisation in order to study, create, validate, and deploy core protocols that can form the foundation for a secure, trust-worthy, annotable and privacy-respecting Internet based on fundamental rights.
