Feminist Internet Research Network (FIRN) is a collaborative and multidisciplinary research project led by the Association for Progressive Communications. It gathers researchers from around the world, but especially in the Global South, to explore new approaches to digital research built around the Feminist Principles of the Internet (FPI) and feminist research practices and values. In 2019, the network arranged its first convening with eight researchers selected to be part of the FIRN project, six peer advisors, donors, and facilitators. The network managed to create a collective ethics of feminist research principles and domains of change that ground the network's values.
