This report presents a collection of narratives from Iranian civil society activists who have become victims of the Iranian regime’s sophisticated censorship apparatus and its suppression of digital activism. It also hints at the contentious relationship between the growth of the internet in Iran over the past two decades and the regime’s response to it. This will help readers to appreciate and put into context the importance of the Computer Crimes Law, a relatively new element in the Iranian regime’s vast apparatus of tools for the methodical suffocation of civil society and online expression.
What Tavaana Students Have to Say
This is the first time I have taken part in Tavaana’s courses. I am very pleased to have done so, because, along with the class itself being at a relatively high level, all of the subjects are explained very clearly and plainly. That will make it useful to most users.
