Michael Collyer


Information Controls Fellow


Michael Collyer is a Senior Information Controls Fellow, working with the Oxford Internet Institute to research internet shutdowns.

The language surrounding internet shutdowns and how they fit into the broader field of information control warrants further research. Therefore, in order to better understand how to identify, classify and frame different types of shutdowns, Michael is writing a research paper exploring these specific elements. He will also create an innovative interactive database to centralize shutdown data and other relevant data such as protests. In addition, given the recent developments in computational methodologies, he will analyze shutdowns using an advanced data science method. These deliverables will cumulate in useful resources for those interested in understanding and/or researching shutdowns.
