Citizen Lab: “Digital Transnational Repression Explained”

Animation/Production/Project Management: 1188 Films





This animation explains how authoritarian states suppress dissent transnationally, using digital technologies to reach past territorial borders. It was created to function as part of a larger, publicly-accessible report by the Citizen Lab:  “Psychological and Emotional War: Digital Transnational Repression in Canada.”

The Citizen Lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto, focusing on research, development, and high-level strategic policy and legal engagement at the intersection of information and communication technologies, human rights, and global security.

The animation was created by 1188 Films, a multidisciplinary creative studio based in Toronto, using my illustration work. (See full credits at the end of animation for all the many contributors!).
