The Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network Cross-border Digital Policies for Africa Project seeks to leverage existing networks of actors to frame, map and address cross-border digital policy issues across Africa. The project aims to help policymakers understand the cross-border dimensions of digital policy approaches and their effects.

This IGF session, which took place on November 28, 2022, launched the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network Regional Status Report "Framing, Mapping and Addressing Cross-Border Digital Policies in Africa".

A key outcome of the Cross-border Digital Policies for Africa Project, the Report has been prepared by a team led by Research ICT Africa’s Executive Director, Dr. Alison Gillwald. 

A first snapshot of the key findings was presented at a workshop on October 25, 2022

The Report explores why policy coordination is important to building an inclusive and vibrant digital economy in Africa. It identifies key trends taking shape across the region and presents opportunities and challenges for government, private sector, and civil society actors to consider.
