CIPIT is the Sub Saharan Africa partner for the CYRILLA Collaborative [https://cyrilla.org/] which is a global initiative that seeks to address an increasingly urgent need for comprehensive databases that aggregate legislation and case law across a variety of jurisdictions; a need expressed by digital rights researchers, journalists, civil society advocates, human rights defenders, legal professionals, and others seeking to shape the rapidly evolving legal frameworks for digital rights worldwide.
Central to the Collaborative is its digital rights database which enables users to access digital rights legislation, cases, and analyses concerning human rights in digitally-networked spaces. This manual outlines CIPIT’s scope of work, benefits, and challenges faced in its development of the ICT Policy Africa database.
