Information Controls Fellow
As a senior information control fellow Sylvia will work with East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Network to study the application of information controls in Tanzania.
The study will investigate the ways in which government and other non-state actors are limiting freedom of expression and other rights online. The project will detect, document and analyze technical and legislative threats to online freedoms with the aim of providing evidence for technical and policy mitigation to threats identified.
Prior to this fellowship, Sylvia has actively advocated for Internet Freedom in Africa through research, supporting Internet governance training and participating in conversations on Internet policy in Africa.
