Human Rights Internet Censorship Dashboards for South-East Asia

sinar_dash.jpg

The project is focused on providing an accessible means of understanding censorship occurring in Southeast Asia.

The project created an initial iteration of a website dashboard service that displays current and past Internet censorship of News Media, Political Criticism, Religion, Sex Education and Social Networks backed from the Open Observatory for Network Interference (OONI) API. The current version of the dashboard includes Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia. The dashboard will continue to be developed and serves as an open source template that can be used in other parts of the world.
