State of Internet Freedoms in East Africa 2014On May 23 2014 the Collaboration on International ICT Policy in East and Southern Africa (CIPESA) launched The State of Internet Freedoms in East Africa research report which is an investigation into the policies and practices defining internet freedom in East Africa, specifically Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda over the period 2010 to April 2014.

The report comes up with a number of specific recommendations for regulatory reform to protect user freedom, and also suggests an education program amongst regulators and others on the primacy of usercentricity and transparency in fostering a thriving network, with the consequent economic and social benefits.

Also on May 23, full day conference in Kampala, Uganda discussed the report. Unfortunately,to our knowledge, there is no recording available.
