CIPESA recognises that internet freedom is multi-faceted, and just like it is essential to have a multiplicity of stakeholders working jointly, it also requires diversity in the voices, backgrounds, viewpoints, and thematic work areas of those that attend FIFAfrica. In line with this, there is limited funding to support travel for participation at FIFAfrica22. Preference will be given to applicants who can partially support their attendance. CIPESA focuses on session proposals including panel discussions, lightning talks, exhibitions, and skills workshops to shape the agenda for FIFAfrica22.
The Forum, which is set to take place in Lusaka, Zambia on September 26-29, 2022, offers a platform for deliberation on gaps and opportunities for advancing privacy, free expression, inclusion, free flow of information, civic participation, and innovation online.
