The Africa Digital Rights’ Hub is a not-for-profit think tank registered in Ghana that advances and promotes research and advocacy on digital rights across the African continent, including digital identity systems and data privacy.
Interested in the impact of digital technology on people living in the continent, the Hub brings together academic researchers, stakeholders, policy makers, regional and international bodies to address digital rights issues in Africa. In 2018, the Hub organized the inaugural Data Protection Africa Summit. The Hub promotes "afro-centric" solutions by empirical evidence gathered through research to ensure that Africans are not left behind or exploited in the protection and guarantee of fundamental rights in the digital age.
The Hub’s aim is to facilitate African-led research into digital rights to help adopt policy and legal solutions that are best suitable for Africa and to build capacity for the continent.
