Digital Repression Growing Globally, Threatening Freedoms [redacted]
National Intelligence Council (U.S.)
From the document: "This NICA [National Intelligence Council Assessment] responds to a request from the DNI [U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence] for an assessment of the implications of governments' use of the Internet and other digital technologies to suppress freedom and control public debate. The assessment focuses on digital repression, which we define as the use of digital information and communication technologies to surveil, manipulate, or coerce individuals or groups to control public debate and prevent challenges to leaders' hold on power. Several related topics are outside the scope of this paper, including governments' efforts to influence public opinion outside their borders, with the exception of their diaspora communities; to shape foreign election outcomes; or to conduct cyber attacks."
