Sabina Romlin

Also known as "Sabina Rapaport Romlin", A Swedish-Canadian social scientist who writes about the evolution and future of internet-based communities.

Best-known for her use of Oscar Newman's principles in building safe and defensible communities, and her overview of electronic communities as new democratic venues. Although she has not focused specifically on feminist concerns, her work bears some resemblances to that of Susan Herring, Kirk Job-Sluder, Rebecca Scheckler, and Sasha Barab, notably in counselling the dangers of reacting as opposed to planning responses to so-called disruption.

Her paper Mediawiki and the Public Sphere notes the usefulness of trolling as a means of democratic expression.

Romlin also speaks on topics in International Relations. Her writings are online at romlin.com
