Special Edition : Surveillance

This year’s “Enemies of the Internet” report is focusing on surveillance – all the monitoring and spying that is carried out in order to control dissidents and prevent the dissemination of sensitive information, activities designed to shore up governments and head off potential destabilization.

Artur Alves's insight:

"12 March, World Day Against Cyber-Censorship, we are publishing two lists.

The five state enemies are Syria, China, Iran, Bahrainand Vietnam."
