Federal Communications Commissioner Robert McDowell will join the Hudson Institute Center for Economics of the Internet as a visiting fellow when he leaves the agency, his office announced May 14.
McDowell's last day at the commission will be May 17. He announced in March that he would be stepping down from the five-member FCC.
In his new role, McDowell will continue his involvement in international telecommunications and internet policy issues. Last year, McDowell was among the most outspoken opponents of proposals by several member countries of the International Telecommunications Union to give the United Nations broad new powers to regulate the internet, its functions, financial models, infrastructure, and availability.
“As its mission statement articulates, the Hudson Institute is a nonpartisan policy organization dedicated to innovative research and analysis that promotes global security, prosperity, and freedom. Ensuring that the Internet marketplace remains free from unnecessary government and multilateral intervention will help achieve those noble goals,” he said in a statement.
McDowell served on the commission for nearly seven years, and in that time has developed a reputation for bipartisanship and collegiality while advocating tirelessly for market-oriented, “do-no-harm” regulation.
