Countdown to #DRIF20

    About #DRIF20

    The 8th edition of the Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum will hold from April 21 to 23, 2020, in Abuja, Nigeria. The Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum has gained a reputation as an important platform where conversations on digital policy in Africa are shaped, policy directions debated and partnerships forged for action. If you are interested in privacy, affordable Internet, increasing women’s access to digital tools, Internet shutdowns and similar themes, mark your calendar and join members of civil society, the technical community, academia, government and private sector for yet another agenda shaping event in 2020. Registration for #DRIF20 will close on December 31, 2019.

    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 second year in a row, the Forum will focus considerable time and energy on digital inclusion, as we believe that digital inclusion is crucial in a continent where internet access is still a luxury or entirely non-existent 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 DRIF 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.
