Summer Institute 2013

The University of Toronto convened a week-long workshop on July 22-26, 2013 on monitoring Internet openness and rights from a multidisciplinary perspective.

We invited leading researchers, students, and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines to discuss research on the study of information controls, present latest work, facilitate research review and mentorship, discuss research ethics, and engage in intensive research methods training.

We received submissions on a wide range of relevant topics. Submission that explore multidisciplinary approaches were especially encouraged.
