DescriptionThe Workshop was organised by the Annenberg School for Communication’s Internet Policy Observatory, the Collaboration on
International ICT Policy in East and Southern Africa (CIPESA), Research ICT Africa, Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANet), Unwanted Witness, Paradigm Initiative, and
Young ICT Advocates to equip young scholars, activists, lawyers, and technologists working across Africa in the aspect of using research for digital rights advocacy.
The workshop provided a venue for stakeholders in the region to build collaborative possibilities across sectors, expand research capacity within practitioner and digital rights advocacy communities, and to provide the skills and know-how to more strategically use research and data to advance advocacy efforts. Sessions covered both qualitative and quantitative methods and provided the space for hands-on activities and the development of individual and group research interests. In this way, the workshop created opportunities to connect scholarly expertise with policymakers and advocates and improve working synergies between emerging African networks of civil society organizations, academic centers and think-tanks.
