OpenNet Initiative

The OpenNet Initiative is a joint project whose goal is to monitor and report on [internet filtering] and [surveillance] practices by nations. The project employs a number of technical means, as well as an international network of investigators, to determine the extent and nature of government-run internet filtering programs. Participating academic institutions include the [Citizen Lab] at the [Munk Centre for International Studies] , [University of Toronto] ; [Berkman Center for Internet & Society] at [Harvard Law School] ; the [Oxford Internet Institute] (OII) at [University of Oxford] ; and, [The SecDev Group] which took over from the Advanced Network Research Group at the [Cambridge Security Programme] , [University of Cambridge] .

The ONI uses several methods to test and document internet censorship in a country.
- Development and deployment of a suite of technical enumeration tools and core methodologies for the study of Internet filtering and surveillance;
- Capacity-building among networks of local advocates and researchers;
- Advanced studies exploring the consequences of current and future trends and trajectories in filtering and surveillance practices, and their implications for domestic and international law and governance regimes.
