Citizen Lab’s Irene Poetranto authored an op-ed on the blocking of Vimeo, a video-sharing site, in Indonesia. Titled “Toward an open, free and secure Internet,” the commentary was published in The Jakarta Post on 24 May 2013. In the article, Poetranto urged for the Indonesian government to take steps to “ensure accountability in the content control process” and to “engage with and involve civil society, private sector, academia, technical community and other stakeholders in the governance of the Internet in Indonesia.”

The op-ed was followed by a publication of a report titled “The Blocking of Vimeo in Indonesia.”  This report provides the background on information controls and the recent blocking of Vimeo in Indonesia.
