Internet & Jurisdiction Project
The Internet & Jurisdiction Project was launched in 2012 to address the tension between the cross-border nature of the Internet and the patchwork of national jurisdictions. To enable the digital coexistence of different norms in shared cross-border online spaces, it facilitates a global multi-stakeholder dialogue process to develop a transnational due process framework. It actively engages key entities from states, Internet platforms, technical operators, civil society, academia and international organizations. The Internet & Jurisdiction process enables the collective development of innovative cooperation mechanisms that are as transnational as the network itself to preserve the global character of the Internet.
Global Internet Governance
Paul spoke, among others, at the UN Internet Governance Forum, EuroDIG, OECD and the Council of Europe.

Paul is also a participant in the Committee of experts on cross-border flow of Internet traffic and Internet freedom at the Council of Europe and in the World Economic Forum's Future of the Internet Initiative.
Prior to co-founding the Internet & Jurisdiction Project, Paul wanted to become a journalist and worked for a political news broadcaster in Berlin and an international radio station in Paris.
