Google Policy Fellowship Awarded to Ph.D. Candidate OlgaKhrustaleva for Internet Censorship Research

img_0335We are delighted to announce that SOC Ph.D. candidate Olga Khrustaleva has been awarded a competitive Google Policy Fellowship to study the Internet censorship experiences of journalists and activists across Latin America. She is working with Derechos Digitales (Digital Rights), a nonprofit organization based in Santiago, Chile that focuses on digital human rights. Part of the project will involve a survey (in Spanish and Portuguese) of journalists and activists who have experienced some form of Internet censorship, included DDoS attacks, threats, or legal action. This experience will help inform her ongoing dissertation work on Internet development in Cuba.
