The Citizen Lab Summer Institute on Monitoring Internet Openness and Rights is a series of intensive research workshops hosted annually at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

The workshops bring together a diverse group of experts from traditionally disparate disciplines who are focused on studying technologies and policies that can threaten, or promote, freedom of speech, freedom of association, privacy of communications and online activities, anonymity of online action, and security of digital behaviours.

In order to attend the Citizen Lab Summer Institute, you need to submit a project proposal that clearly outlines a project on information controls that you are undertaking. The project proposals will form the basis of the two days of breakout groups.

Read more about the requirements to join. Proposals must be submitted using our online form by April 30, 2015. Due to the volume of applications received, only successful applicants will be contacted. Candidates should not contact the Lab to establish the status of their applications.
