Lecture: Collect Evidence of Internet Censorship

A Call to Action

Numerous cases of internet censorship have been reported by journalists and NGOs over the last years, but how can we collect evidence to prove such cases? How can we understand how censorship is being implemented, and therefore how it can be circumvented?

Since 2012, the Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) project has been investigating internet censorship around the world. OONI's network measurement software has shed light on many scary, yet interesting, developments in how information controls are being
deployed. From Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology being used to
block media websites during heavy political protests, to country-wide
internet blackouts during elections and other events.

This talk will highlight some of the most striking internet censorship
events that have been detected by OONI over the last years, and will
include a discussion of their relation and relevance to social and
political events. This talk will also explain how you can take action to
uncover evidence of internet censorship in your country and beyond.
