A NEW REPORT ON GLOBAL INTERNET FREEDOM names the most—and least—free countries for internet and new media freedom.
Freedom House’s Freedom on the Net 2011 measured each country’s level of internet freedom and characterized each nation by “free,” “partly free,” and “not free,” which you can see on this graph:
You can also get an at-a-glance global map of the results. Interestingly, there are many countries not characterized by Freedom House; most of South America and Africa, for example, are “not available.”
Despite some of the report’s shortcomings, you can still get a valuable look at which countries block political content and lack transparency. Download and read the entire report here.
