This new toolkit developed by African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms (AfDec) provides an overview of all relevant national, regional and international mechanisms, duty bearers and rights holders. It also provides a checklist for analysing data protection and privacy-related policy and legislation using the human rights-based approach (HRBA).
The COVID-19 pandemic has sped up this shift to the digital sphere significantly around the world, and Africa is no exception. This makes the launch of this toolkit especially timely.
