Cyberspace and Freedom of Expression in Post-Coup Myanmar

A team of young researchers, publishing anonymously, carried out a series of focus group discussions and key informant interviews in Aug-Oct 2021, to understand youth conceptions of ‘freedom of expression’ in the online world, and how this was being affected by the country’s chaotic political environment. In addition to the narrative report, three small creative grants were issued to artists who wanted to explore and bridge the domains of political expression, technology and art.
