WEEKLY READINGS


Week 17 Oct 2019

For the last 20 years, African countries have been broadening and enhancing control measures that govern the use of digital communications including the internet. According to a new report by the Collaboration for International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA), these controls when viewed collectively, continue to undermine democracy and cement authoritarians hold on political power. With only 24.4% of Africans using the internet, increasingly, the countries reviewed have since 1999 adopted a similar pattern of internet control measures across the board.

Week 10 Oct 2019

This study aimed to identify opportunities for women entrepreneurs with regard to the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), focusing on three areas of interest: women in informal cross-border trade (WICBT), gender and value chain analysis, and affirmative action/preferential public procurement.
