African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms
The African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms seeks to promote human rights standards and principles of openness in internet policy formulation and implementation on the continent.
The Declaration was motivated by the need to develop and agree on a set of principles that would inform, and hopefully inspire, policy and legislative processes on Internet rights, freedoms, and governance in Africa. The principles are expected to have broad application at national, sub-regional and regional levels. In this way, the Declaration aims to cultivate an Internet environment that conforms to established human rights standards and can best meet Africa’s social and economic
development needs and goals.
