Kenya to host 2023 Digital Rights, Inclusion Forum

Kenya will next year host the 10th Edition of the Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum (DRIF).

The forum, whose theme is: ‘Building a Sustainable Internet for all’ will take place in Nairobi from 11th to 13th April 2023. Paradigm Initiative (PIN), a leading Pan-African Digital Rights and Inclusion organization has been convening DRIF since 2013.

The organization’s Partnerships and Engagements Manager, Ms. Thobekile Matimbe said the forum is a critical platform where conversations on digital policy in Africa are shaped, policy directions debated, and partnerships forged for action.

“DRIF has been instrumental in setting the tune as an arena for interrogating the digital environment in Africa, discussing global trends and presenting solutions for tackling challenges faced in the region,” she added.

Matimbe said Paradigm Initiative is expecting 300 delegates to attend the in-person event in the city, whose venue will be announced in the coming days and over 200 delegates to join pre-DRIF sessions.

She used the opportunity to announce a call for session proposals welcoming responses from members of the civil society, technical community, academia, government and the private sector.

“The call opened on 2 November 2022 and will run until 31 December 2022,” she added.
