This session will focus on internal and external challenges and threats to Palestinian digital freedom. On one side it will discuss legislative measures implemented by the different governmental actors and on-governmental actors, in particular social media companies such as facebook. These different actors threatened and infringe on digital freedoms of Palestinians in different ways with varying methods. At the same time, there's similarities, not only in intentions but also ramifications, which will be discussed in this session.
