Policing the cyber-space: Self or State Regulation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The session will shed light on practical examples of self-regulation initiatives by journalists operating in the online sphere as well as their response to attempts by governments to impose state-regulations. We'll hear about cases where governments were responsive to journalists' concerns and cases where, under many pretexts, an old school policing approach was applied to the cyber-sphere.

Rapporteur for the session: Laura Schwartz Henderson, Research Project Manager at the Center for Global Communication Studies, Annenberg School for Communication (University of Pennsylvania).
