IGF 2018 LIGHTNING SESSION #7 Growing the #InternetFreedomAfrica Research and Advocacy Community

Since 2014, the Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA) has convened the annual Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa (FIFAfrica) to provide a pan-African space where discussion at the global level can be consolidated at Africa-wide level, drawing a large multi-stakeholder audience of actors from within and beyond the continent.

FIFAfrica has also served as the platform for the dissemniation of our annual State of Internet Freedom in Africa report and a series of reports by our partners which are fundamental to advancing internet freedom in Africa. Ultimately, the forum responds to the need for stronger advocacy on Internet Freedom in Africa.

State of Internet Freedom in Africa 2018 report:  year the report focussed on Data Privacy and Protection Trends in Africa

See the themed reports produced in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
