Just as the rise of the global communications network in the end of the last century provided many opportunities to worldwide media organisations, the recent global decline in online freedom and the increasing sophistication of internet censorship techniques presents an unprecedented challenge to international broadcasters. In this session, members of the Internet Freedom working group of the DG7, a group of publicly funded international media organisations, will present how they are adapting to these challenges, present bypasscensorship.org, and discuss oppurtunities presented by technological developments in internet infrastructure. The session will be structured as a fireside chat with representatives from the anti-censorship divisions of those international media organisations, as well as some members of civil society experiencing highly repressive censorship, and a censorship circumvention technology expert.
