Freedom Online Conference – Accra 2020

6 Feb 2020 - 7 Feb 2020

Accra, Ghana

The annual Freedom Online Conference is the flagship event of the Freedom Online Coalition (FOC), bringing together governments and stakeholders from around the world to discuss the most urgent challenges to the realisation of human rights online. This year, the conference will take place at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre in Accra, Ghana from 6-7 February.

The focus of the Freedom Online Conference 2020, Achieving a Common Vision for Internet Freedom, recognises the significance of convening key actors to renew commitments and pathways towards a rights-respecting framework for Internet freedom through achieving certain key goals.  

The conference will provide a unique forum to re-examine the state of play of current and arising challenges to freedom online, exchange perspectives and identify possible solutions. With Ghana at the helm, the conference will put particular emphasis on reviewing the current state of digital rights across Africa, outlining strategies for improving digital rights on the continent, and globally.
