I've found this a little trickier to have specific categories in this area
in the past, but some countries include:
- Sweden (http://t.co/9AWoPVW)
- Netherlands (
- UN Democracy Fund (http://www.un.org/democracyfund/)
- European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (
Ireland, who recently took over the chairmanship for OSCE has expressed
that Internet Freedom will be a priority, and it is possible that effort
could include net activism (
This list is by no mean exhaustive, and there have been a number of funding
sources that have supported freedom of expression efforts over the years
(including Canada and Norway). I would be curious on learning what
countries I am missing.
