Professor Dr. Christoph Fiedler wrote his doctorate thesis on basic rights of speech/expression and on the prohibition of censorship. He published a monograph on freedom of expression in a connected world and writes on questions of media law in the context of digitalisation and Europeanisation. He participated in hearings in the German Bundestag and the European Parliament, among others on the protection of sources in data retention, data protection law and net neutrality.
