2013 Acknowledgments

Completion of the Freedom on the Net publication would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of the following individuals.

As project director, Sanja Kelly oversaw the research, editorial, and administrative operations, supported by research analysts Mai Truong, Madeline Earp, Laura Reed, Adrian Shahbaz, and senior research assistant Ashley Greco-Stoner. Together, they provided essential research and analysis, edited the country reports, conducted field visits in Uganda, Indonesia, Mexico, Jordan, and Hungary, and led capacity building workshops abroad. Over 70 external consultants served as report authors and advisors, and made an outstanding contribution by producing informed analyses of a highly diverse group of countries and complex set of issues.

Helpful contributions and insights were also made by Daniel Calingaert, executive vice president; Arch Puddington, vice president for research; as well as other Freedom House staff in the United States and abroad. Freedom House is also grateful to Cristiana Gonzalez and Eleonora Rabinovich for their contributions during the Latin America ratings review meeting.

This publication was made possible by the generous support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL), and Google. The content of the publication is the sole responsibility of Freedom House and does not necessarily reflect the views of the Dutch Foreign Ministry, DRL, Google, or any other funder.
