Developing a Digital Rights Model Law for Africa

Participants in this session will have the opportunity to share and learn the tools, skills and collaborations necessary for making digital rights policy with a region-specific approach. In finer details, researchers, policy activists, academia, corporate bodies and state representatives will have a chance to develop a multi-stakeholder policy intervention document states can approach for rights-respecting technologies. Beyond many states' approach to digital rights legislation and guidelines, this session will provide an opportunity to emboss human rights on tech policy conversations in the digital age from the region to the interested countries.
