The Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA) is a centre for research and analysis of information aimed at enabling policy makers to understand ICT policy issues and helping various multi-stakeholders use technologies to improve livelihoods. CIPESA is monitoring Internet freedom in a number of Sub-Saharan African countries in an effort to document and publicize freedom of expression violations, and how cyber security policies and legislations in select African countries enhance, or undermine, Internet freedom.
