The folks at Paradigm Initiative released their 2019 Digital Rights in Africa Report a few days ago. Their tracking of thirteen African countries in 2019, including during elections and other critical moments, laid the foundation for the 2019 Digital Rights in Africa Report.

Building on their previous reports published since 2016, the Digital Rights in Africa Report 2019 gives an in-depth analysis of the state of digital rights in Africa, and examines violations such as Internet disruptions, illegal surveillance, arrest of bloggers and the passage of hurtful legislation, amongst others.

The report, titled, Violations Reloaded: Government Overreach Persists Despite Increased Civil Society Advocacy, takes a critical look at the state of digital rights in 13 African countries – Benin, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Malawi, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
