... "While awareness-building and advocacy are important components of a strategy to elucidate the legal and practical consequences of censorship practices, these avenues are not always possible or effective in regions most affected. Consequently, building awareness of technologies that make it possible to circumvent censorship and thus enhance the individual's right to communicate and access information are also an important means for challenging these practices.
To this end, the Citizen Lab has established an on-line clearinghouse of tools for assessing, archiving and testing anti-censorship, privacy/anonymity, security and encryption software, called the Circumvention Technologies Clearinghouse.


The mission of the OpenNet Initiative is to investigate and challenge state-directed Internet filtering and surveillance practices. Our approach applies methodological rigor to the study of filtration and surveillance blending empirical case studies with sophisticated means for technical verification. Our aim is to generate a credible picture of these practices at a national, regional and corporate level, and to excavate their impact on state sovereignty, security, human rights, international law, and global governance.

The Information Warfare Monitor is an advanced research project examining how states and non-state actors seek to exploit information and information systems to pursue political objectives through non-political means.

The Internet Censorship Explorer (ICE) is a blog maintained by the Citizen Lab's technical research director, Nart Villeneuve. ICE is an incubator where Nart explores the politics of technology (hacktivism, infowar/cyberterrorism and Internet filtering), develops ideas for future Citizen Lab projects, posts proof of concept code and any other snippets of raw data that don't really have a place anywhere else. ICE also contains bleeding edge Internet filtering and censorship research related to the work of the Citizen Lab and the OpenNet Initiative including the development of censorship circumvention technology ...
