Description:
The Internet has become a new battleground between governments that censor online content and those who advocate freedom to browse, post, and share information online for all, regardless of their place of residence. This report examines whether and how furthering Internet freedom can empower civil society vis-a-vis public officials, make the government more accountable to its citizens, and integrate citizens into the policymaking process.
