The Iran Media Program, a project of the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, published an infographic that illustrates the constellation of bodies currently involved in Internet censorship in Iran.

The introduction for the infographic:

This graphic illustrates the constellation of bodies currently involved in Internet censorship in Iran. It attempts to show the complexity of Iranʼs Internet governance system by mapping the relationship between the different policy-making and enforcement bodies involved in Internet censorship and filtering. It spotlights four new bodies—the Supreme Council on Cyberspace, the Committee Charged with Determining Offensive Content, the Cyber Army, and the Cyber Police—that have emerged since 2009 as key institutions responsible for controlling the flow of online communications, both within Iran and between Iranians and the global cybersphere.
