SMEX Year in Review 2017

Welcome to the first-ever SMEX year in review! For us, 2017 was a year of growth. We expanded our full-time staff, produced groundbreaking digital rights research and journalism, initiated a free-speech advocacy network, and launched Masaha, a space for open discussion about digital freedoms in the MENA region.

Browse the interactive gallery below to get a glimpse into our engagement with local and regional issues at the intersection of human rights and technology.

We thank our funders, partners, and allies, without whose support none of this work would be possible.

Finally, as we meet ever-growing challenges to our digital rights, we need you to help shape our agenda and set priorities. Here are some of the ways you can join us in 2018 and beyond: http://bit.ly/JoinSMEXin2018
