FREEDOM ON THE NET 2020 - MANUSHYA'S REPORT FOR THAILAND

14 OCTOBER 2020

On October 14, Freedom House launched its global report on Freedom on the Net for the year 2020, which investigated whether internet freedom in countries around the world has declined or improved since 2019.

This year, Manushya Foundation has developed the Freedom on the Net 2020 country report for Thailand, highlighting laws, trends, cases that impact the rights of Thai netizens online. Thailand scored 35 out of 100 regarding their overall internet freedom, placing them under the ‘Not Free’ category. Amid the global pandemic, numerous pro-democracy student protests, and increased criticism of the government’s policies, Thailand has had many changes to its digital landscape; both positive and negative developments which we have documented in the report.
