Global Voices seeks country-level researchers for our Advox project

Categories: Announcements, Advox


Advox [2], the digital rights initiative of Global Voices, is seeking researchers to conduct, present, and communicate research for a project [3] on networked societies and authoritarianism in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Kenya.

The project will analyze, document and report on the growing phenomenon of the use of digital communications technology to enforce and advance authoritarian governance. This project will create a framework for analysis, build a workflow and method for tracking, documenting, and amplifying incidents and cases for relevant audiences, and produce reporting on a series of cases.

Country researchers will be responsible for implementing the project’s research goals at a national level, collaborating with other country-level researchers on cross-cutting issues, and for producing commentary and analysis for Advox that will support the amplification of the work. Country researchers are responsible for ensuring that research is conducted to the highest methodological standards and supported by contextual insights. Country researchers will also work with the Global Voices team to collate and translate information for other areas of the project as required.
