FIFAfrica22 Call for Proposals: Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa (FIFAfrica22) in Lusaka, Zambia.

Registration is now open for the ninth edition of the Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa (FIFAfrica22). The Forum, which is set to take place in Lusaka, Zambia on September 26-29, 2022, offers a platform for deliberation on gaps and opportunities for advancing privacy, free expression, inclusion, free flow of information, civic participation, and innovation online.

As part of the registration, we invite session proposals including panel discussions, lightning talks, exhibitions, and skills workshops to shape the agenda for FIFAfrica22.




CIPESA recognises that internet freedom is multi-faceted, and just like it is essential to have a multiplicity of stakeholders working jointly, it also requires diversity in the voices, backgrounds, viewpoints, and thematic work areas of those that attend FIFAfrica. In line with this, there is limited funding to support travel for participation at FIFAfrica22. Preference will be given to applicants who can partially support their attendance.


Please note the important dates below related to participation at FIFAfrica22. Submissions close at 18.00 (East Africa Time) on the stated dates:

  • Session proposals will be accepted till July 29, 2022

  • Applications for travel support will be accepted till July 29, 2022

  • Successful session proposals and travel support applicants will be directly notified by August 31, 2022.

  • Registration to attend will close on September 5, 2022.
