Marcus Michaelsen


Information Controls Fellow


As a Senior Information Controls Fellow, Marcus will work together with Hivos to investigate digital threats against diaspora activists from Egypt, Iran and Syria.

The research will assess the methods, motivations and capabilities of state actors targeting human rights defenders and journalists beyond borders. It will also examine the impact of these threats on the targeted communities and their strategies of resistance.

Prior to this fellowship, Marcus has worked as a researcher in the project “Authoritarianism in a Global Age” at the University of Amsterdam.
