This session analyses links between human rights reporting, surveillance, censorship, and the ‘War on Terror’ as the U.S. military expands across Africa. The U.S.’s ‘network centric warfare’ strategy, ‘collect it all’ approach, and ‘cooperation’ with African states with histories of surveillance and political repression, impact human rights reporting in the public interest. Yet, there are tools and tactics human rights researchers and also journalists can use to circumvent surveillance and censorship, while increasing our own security.
