The Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum has gained a reputation as an important platform where conversations on digital policy in Africa are shaped, and policy directions forged.
Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum 2020
The Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum (DRIF) is a platform where tough topical global issues, especially in Africa, are discussed by civil society, technology companies, government, academia and other stakeholders.
DRIF is an arena where tough topical global issues around Internet rights, especially in Africa, are discussed between civil society, technology companies, government, academia and other stakeholders. For the first time ever, the Forum will focus considerable time and energy on digital inclusion, after organising seven editions that focused heavily on digital rights. They believe digital inclusion is crucial in a continent where internet access is still a luxury or entirely nonexistent for many.
The forum presents a unique platform for discussions and engagement around current trends and emerging issues affecting Internet Freedom in Africa. Since 2017, proceedings at Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum have been bilingual- English and French, to cater to the diversity of participants attending.
Participants at DRIF include civil society organizations, policy actors/makers, legal/policy experts, academia, advocates, tech enthusiasts, industry representatives and active citizens among others.
