Abstract [en]

'Arab Spring' has caused all kinds of new insurgent oppositional movements all around the world to emerge. Azerbaijani online opposition, inspired by the 'success' of revolutions in Middle East and organized mostly on social networking sites, thus adding more 'sense' to democratization effect of Internet is not an exception within this scope. However, Azerbaijan is also one of the best examples to clearly show that technically savvy state and its surveillative potential is also constantly developing itself. Based on Morozov's concept of net delusion this paper looks at Azerbaijan, one of the richest Post-Soviet states, and its new media based oppositional movements and aims to show how these efforts are crushed down by surveillative state apparatus. Paper insists that only-Internet based politics is not enough, as the gender perspective of the topic clearly shows, since female activists are the most effected ones by oppressive politics of the state.
