ONI Releases 2013 Latin America Research

The OpenNet Initiative (ONI) is proud to release new reports on Internet regulation and filtering in Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru, along with an updated report on Venezuela, where the ONI tested for the first time in 2007. All five profiles can be accessed at: https://opennet.net/research/profiles.

Many governments across Latin America view the Internet as a key tool for development and are developing ICT policies accordingly. While the region has a history of media abuses and restrictions on freedom of the press, ONI testing found little evidence of Internet filtering.

About the OpenNet Initiative
The OpenNet Initiative is a collaborative partnership of three institutions: the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto; the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University; and the SecDev Group (Ottawa). Our aim is to investigate, expose and analyze Internet filtering and surveillance practices in a credible and non-partisan fashion. We intend to uncover the potential pitfalls and unintended consequences of these practices, and thus help to inform better public policy and advocacy work in this area.
