*New Distributed Forms of Censorship Online *

Dan Arnaudo, a UW alumnus currently at the National Democratic Institute,
is coming to give a talk *Thursday (5/24) 10am-11:30am in CMU 202* about
his work researching new forms of online distributed censorship,
computational propaganda and media manipulation.

Dan Arnaudo, Senior Program Manager with the National Democratic Institute
and UW International Policy Institute Cybersecurity Fellow, will be
presenting on his new report examining "New Forms of Censorship" globally.
The report, published by the Center for International Media Assistance,
looks at case studies around the world and proposes potential responses for
civil society, private enterprise, governments and particularly the press
and media development community based on this assessment. It takes on
international cases, ranging from Bahrain, China, the Philippines, Turkey
and Ukraine, to explain new technologies that governments – particularly
authoritarian regimes – are using to disrupt the free flow of news and
information online.

This includes the use of computational propaganda, troll farms, bot
networks and forms of algorithmic manipulation, amongst other methods. It
also looks at how these tactics differ from previous methods of government
censorship, and how they have changed the way governments address these
issues, both democratic and authoritarian, and suggests potential legal,
political, and technical countermeasures.
