The The FIFAfrica 2021 Forum will be held in a hybrid format, both online and offline, between 28 and 30 September.
#FIFAfrica is the annual Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa and is hosted by the International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA). The Forum is a landmark event that convenes a wide spectrum of stakeholders from across the internet governance and digital rights arenas to deliberate on gaps, concerns and opportunities for advancing privacy, free expression, non-discrimination and the free ﬂow of information online.
The 8th edition will address rising challenges to the enjoyment of internet freedom in various African countries, including arrests and intimidation of online users, internet disruptions, digital taxes, and a proliferation of laws and regulations that undermine the potential of digital technology to drive the continent’s socio-economic and political development.
