WebObserver.net is an international project which aim to measure what Internet users think about the emerging phenomenon of Internet regulation, and at the same time inform citizens around the world for this crucial (for the future of Web) issue.
Our research is based on the conduction of surveys in different languages worldwide via cooperation with country-based researchers and university academics. These surveys have many questions in common, giving us the ability to produce gradually global data regarding Internet regulation and measure the opinion of users around the globe.
At 20th of March 2010, WebObserver.net has joined the efforts of academics around the world, in hope to raise public awareness at a less known but rapidly increasing phenomenon: internet censorship and regulation governance of the web.
The project is moderated by Nikolaos Koumartzis, a PhD researcher of Department of Journalism and Mass Media Communication (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece), and it is supervised by Dr. Andreas Veglis, director of Department’s Media Informatics Lab.
