Over the last year a record number of governments have shut down internet access and cut off social media services to control the flow of information during events of political significance, national emergencies and even elections.
These Internet shutdowns pose unique challenges to journalists. How do you report about a region or country when you can't contact the people who live there? How can you fairly represent communities that have been cut off, and moreover, how can you get the news out when you are in the midst of a shutdown yourself?
Join the Turkey Blocks internet shutdown forensics team and journalists who've dealt with the issue to explore the impact of online mass-censorship and new internet "kill-switch" legislation threatening to isolate vulnerable communities and bring unprecedented restrictions on media freedom to Europe.
