Wafa Ben Hassine


Information Controls Fellow


As a seasonal Information Controls fellow, Wafa worked diligently with the Electronic Frontier Foundation during her 6 month fellowship to produce a report analyzing the raft of cyberterrorism and cybercrime laws enacted in the Arab world.

The report demonstrates how these laws are oftentimes used to silence dissident voices and stifle free speech online. The threat such laws pose to internet freedom is growing not just in the Arab world, but globally. Wafa’s report serves to highlight the vigilance necessary to protect fundamental freedoms online from a wide variety of threats.
