As part of the Mary Junck Research Colloquium series, Elon University School of Law Professor Enrique Armijo will give a talk at UNC entitled “Recent Developments in Digital Communications Law and Policy: Kill Switches, Smart Mobs, and Freedom of Speech.” He will share his current research on the ways in which government control over communications infrastructure can pose a threat to free speech and discuss the tension between regulation of social media and freedom of expression both domestically and abroad. He will talk about his work on international media law reform projects in Africa and the Middle East and discuss his approaches for developing research interests into projects.
Armijo is a graduate of the UNC School of Law. You can read more about him at http://www.elon.edu/e-web/law/faculty/armijo_enrique.xhtml.
