“Brexit: Implications for Digital Citizens and Consumers”

This paper, published today and written for the Carnegie Trust by William Perrin, a fellow Board member of the Good Things Foundation, considers both the potential risks and opportunities Brexit brings digital citizens and consumers in the UK.

Specifically, it explores: the regulation of the digital sector and telecommunications market; mobile roaming; data privacy and protection; digital innovation; state aid; the labour force; and consumption of digital products and services.

As a consumer advocate, I was interested in the conclusion:

“There does not currently appear to be a strong citizen or consumer voice involved in helping to shape the UK’s approach to the digital sector post-Brexit and steps should be taken to address this gap as consumer input can provide valuable insight to key issues.”
