Last month, the Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and
Southern Africa (CIPESA) hosted the Forum on Internet Freedoms in East
Africa 2014 in Kampala, Uganda. The forum drew participants from
Burundi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.

The forum discussed the status of online freedoms in East Africa,
including legal and extra-legal threats to the enjoyment of internet
freedoms in the region and also drew recommendations for advancing a
free, open and secure internet in East Africa. Please see event report
here; http://www.cipesa.org/?wpfb_dl=83

The forum also served as the launch of the State of Internet Freedoms
in East Africa 2014 research report. (Please see report here;
http://opennetafrica.org/wp-content/uploads/researchandpubs/Report%20on%20the%20Forum%20on%20Internet%20Freedoms%20in%20East%20Africa%202014.pdf).
The report produced under the OpenNet Africa Initiative -
opennetafrica.org presents the findings of an exploratory study on
policy developments and actions related to internet freedoms in
Burundi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda over the period
2009 to April 2014.

Please feel free to share among your networks.
