The Project:

Under the Innovation for Change MENA Hub’s objectives and provided the multiple restrictions imposed by MENA governments on internet freedom and the threats facing the activists and citizens’ digital rights on online platforms, 7amleh will conduct a regional mapping of digital rights in four countries in the MENA region (Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia). This mapping will serve as a base for joint advocacy to international technology companies and governments to uphold digital rights, in particular, the right to freedom of expression online. This research will build into the findings of the MENA Hub’s mapping on advocacy in the closing of civic spaces, this particular mapping will focus on the closing of civic space in the digital space. The mapping will culminate in the production of quantitative data on digital rights violations in the studied four countries as well as the formulation of policy and advocacy recommendations that 7amleh and the MENA Hub will engage in addressing following the completion of the mapping.

The research will be led by a regional researcher (referred to as lead researcher) and local researchers in each target country (Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia).
