Dan Arnaudo, Senior Program Manager with the National Democratic Institute and UW International Policy Institute Cybersecurity Fellow, will be presenting on his new report examining "New Forms of Censorship" globally. The report, published by the Center for International Media Assistance, looks at case studies around the world and proposes potential responses for civil society, private enterprise, governments and particularly the press and media development community based on this assessment. It takes on cases from around the world, including Bahrain, China, the Philippines and Ukraine, to explain new technologies that governments – particularly authoritarian regimes – are using to disrupt the free flow of news and information online. This includes the use of computational propaganda, troll farms, bot networks and forms of algorithmic manipulation, amongst other methods. It also looks at how these tactics differ from previous methods of government censorship, and how they have changed the way governments address these issues, both democratic and authoritarian, and suggests potential legal, political, and technical countermeasures.
