Meri is an international lawyer from Armenia, and has extensive experience in international human rights litigation, research and consulting. For the last six years, she has been engaged in Internet governance initiatives and communities, working on digital human rights, content moderation, intermediary liability and privacy issues. Currently, Meri is a Legal Fellow at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and a Steering Committee member of the Internet Rights and Principles Coalition.
