The Center for Media and Communication Studies and the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication will convene a week summer intensive program at CEU from July 6-12.
This intensive summer course brings together a broadly international group of researchers, policy advocates, technologists and human rights activists to gain new insights into the role which civil society can play in advocating for a free and open internet. Sessions will highlight the potential of technology and online tools for mobilizing and organizing constituencies in support of an open Internet and for enhancing the security and privacy of online communication.
This 2014 Course will focus on:
