Online Harassment Research & Action


Online harassment has been an enduring and evolving social concern for over 40 years, yet many of the most urgent empirical questions for public well-being and freedom remain unexplored. Nor can our answers currently evolve at the pace of socio-technical change.

On August 17th and 18th, I worked with Jigsaw on an event at the MIT Media Lab to convene 35 researchers, advocates, and platform representatives to identify and advance high impact research about online harassment.
