CGCS Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Emad Khazraee discusses the Fatwa against mobile broadband expansion in Iran.
To overcome these challenges and to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the online public environments in Iran, Khazraee and his colleagues at the Center for Global Communication Studies at University of Pennsylvania started a project for the Cartography of Iran’s online publics. The goal of the project is collecting empirical evidence that helps us to achieve a high resolution image of public online environments in Iran. As part of this project, he has conducted research on the Twitter use among Iranian users during Iran’s 2013 presidential election.
