Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa (FIFAfrica24) Travel Support Program 2024

Deadline: 17th of June, 2024.

The 2024 Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa (FIFAfrica24) Travel Support Program is now accepting applications.

For the 2024 Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa (FIFAfrica24), the Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA) is inviting interested parties to submit session topics. The agenda of the event, which will bring together hundreds of policymakers, regulators, human rights advocates, journalists, academics, commercial sector players, global information intermediaries, bloggers, and developers, will be shaped in part by the applications that are accepted.

FIFAfrica24, which is set to take place in Dakar, Senegal on September 25-27, 2024, offers a platform for deliberation on gaps and opportunities for advancing privacy, free expression, inclusion, free flow of information, civic participation, and innovation online. This year marks the first time that the largest gathering on digital rights on the continent will be hosted in Francophone Africa. Previous editions have been hosted in Uganda, South Africa, Ghana, Ethiopia, Zambia and Tanzania.

CIPESA is committed to ensuring diversity of voices, backgrounds and viewpoints in attendance and as organisers and speakers at panels at FIFAfrica. In line with this, there is limited funding to support travel for participation at FIFAfrica24. Preference will be given to applicants who can partially support their attendance and those who organise sessions.


  • Submissions close at 18.00 (East Africa Time) on June 17, 2024.
  • Successful session proposals and travel support applicants will be directly notified by July 1, 2024.
