Dear Prospective Participant,
The Africa Digital Rights’ Hub is a newly established not-for-profit think tank registered and based in Accra, Ghana that advances and promotes research and advocacy on digital rights across the African continent. We are interested in the impact of digital technology on people living in Africa. The Hub therefore brings together academic researchers, stakeholders, policy makers, regional and international bodies to address digital rights issues on the Continent. We seek to develop and promote ‘afro-centric’ solutions based on empirical evidence gathered through research. This is to ensure that Africans are not left behind as far as the protection and guarantee of fundamental rights are concerned in the 4th Revolution.
In collaboration with the Mauritian Data Protection Office, we are organising a Data Protection Africa Summit under the theme ‘Breaking New Frontiers’ in Mauritius from 19th – 23rd November 2018. The Summit (first of its kind in Africa) will bring together regulators, data controllers, processors, innovators, policy makers and lawmakers across the globe to discuss and offer solutions to emerging data protection/privacy issues on the Continent. It also among others, seeks to build capacity, facilitate collaboration, showcase solutions and expertise, as well as explore critical issues of data protection/privacy on the African continent.
We believe the Summit will provide a unique opportunity to enhance your knowledge on the subject of privacy and network with like-minds on the Continent and beyond. We are by this letter therefore extending an invitation to you and to your organization to participate at the Summit.
Please find attached the event brochure with more details. Kindly confirm your participation before 19th October 2018 for a 10% early bird discount. Registrations can be completed online at https://dataprotectionafrica.org/participant-registration/
We look forward to having you in Mauritius.
