The European Union is a trading block of 28 member states who have pooled their sovereignty to form a common market for free trade. The European Union has been an enabler for many cross-border Internet projects, including E-Participation, E-Twinning, Classroom 2.0, among others. The legislative powers of the European Union, which are constructed with the involvement of the European Parliament, cover many areas related to the Internet, including e-commerce. There are other European treaties, such as the Convention of Cybercrime that are agreed by EU members also.
The objective of the proposed Special Issue is to highlight the specific issues and challenges around enabling and making use of the Internet in Europe.
