  • First chapter of dissertation Numerous qualitative case studies and even more anecdotes on digital media in repressive regimes What does this all add up to? Can we start measuring the aggregate impact of digital activism on repressive rule? Does digital resistance, that is, digital activism applied to strategic nonviolent action, threatening repressive regimes? Is digital resistance reshaping the public sphere? How can analyze quantitatively the qualitative, anecdotal impact of digital resistance, or lack thereof?
