Supporting the #KeepItOn campaign with network measurement data

Censorship events are increasingly being reported around the world. The need for evidence to support advocacy efforts against government-commissioned censorship is urgent. Access Now's KeepItOn movement has spearheaded campaigns against internet shutdowns around the world. These campaigns could be strengthened through the use of network measurement data, revealing the breadth and depth of internet censorship and potentially serving as evidence. The aim of this session is to explore how network measurement projects, like OONI (Open Observatory of Network Interference), can better support the KeepItOn community. We will also discuss the pros and cons of running network measurement tests from different platforms. We encourage you to join this workshop to: * Map out the needs of the KeepItOn community * Learn about different network measurement methodologies (and share your own!) * Identify the challenges (and limitations) in using network measurement tools and network measurement data as part of advocacy * Share feedback for the improvement of network measurement tools and methodologies, to better serve the needs of the KeepItOn community Through this discussion, we hope to identify the next steps to improve collaboration and better support advocacy efforts against internet censorship around the world.
