The Science of Internet Freedom

Bringing Empirical Measurements to Censorship Circumvention

This research project looks at whether the scientific method may improve tools that promote freedom on the Internet, such as tools for circumventing censorship on Internet. A key component of the project is empirical measurements of the Internet to understand the issues that real users face.
