We at Internet Policy
Observatory Pakistan and Center for Global Communication Studies are happy to
announce our latest report "Benchmarking
Demand: Pakistan and the internet users's perspective". This report is the third in a series that
examines public attitudes and preferences about Internet
censorship and regulation in states in which media and Internet use
are subject to increasing restrictions.
context of Pakistan, where rapid increases in internet access and usage
are accompanied by a propensity to regulate this new cyber-territory, the
goal of this report is to uncover the views of Pakistani Internet users
with respect to the regulation and control of online spaces.
of these reports, we seek to provide insight into who uses the Internet in
each country and the most used and trusted sources of online and
offline information. But more than that, the surveys seek to add to a
process: learning how to plumb general views about the influence of the
Internet on politics and society and chart attitudes concerning censorship
on various political, religious and social grounds. The reports
test an approach to determining who, among competing institutions,
people trust to regulate the Internet, what constitutes their policy
preferences about Internet regulation, and the extent to which Internet
regulation issues might figure in political mobilization efforts
in furtherance of Internet freedom.
I hope you all found this report interesting.
