The main aim of the project is to collect data about online attacks against journalists and provide both legal and technical help to the victims. Given the recurrent attacks such as online harassment, smear campaigns, throttling of social media, blockings, hackings of personal accounts, existence of troll armies in Turkey, she is focused on press freedom and digital rights.
