Stockholm - A global commission has been created to investigate how to ensure Internet freedom and security at a time of growing concerns over privacy breaches.

Sweden's foreign minister, Carl Bildt, will head a group of about 25 experts from various backgrounds, including academia, government and civil society. They will work together over the coming two years to create “a strategic vision for the future of Internet governance.”

The creation of the Global Commission on Internet Governance was announced on Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The commission was set up by Canada's Centre for International Governance Innovation and Britain's Royal Institute of International Affairs. Bildt is an avid Internet and Twitter user. - Sapa-AP
