Jantine van Herwijnen

Digital Defenders Partnership Project Officer

Jantine van Herwijnen is working for Hivos at the Digital Defenders Partnership. In late 2012, the Digital Defenders Partnership (DDP) was established to provide rapid response to threats to internet freedom. The Partnership aims at keeping the internet open and free from emerging threats, specifically in internet repressive and transitional environments. It also wants to increase and better coordinate emergency support for the internet’s critical users, such as bloggers, cyber activists, journalists and human rights defenders, whenever and wherever they are under threat. Jantine has been living in the Middle-East for 5 years and works on human rights, media development and security.
