The Internet Freedom Forum is an annual event of organized by Paradigm Initiative Nigeria to take on emerging conversations involved in the narrative of digital rights and Internet Freedom in Africa..

The Forum will draw several participants from various fields with insight into the digital rights conversations in Africa.

This is being done in form of a survey which takes about 20 minutes to complete. The result of the survey will be an Africa-wide Report of the state of Internet freedom in Africa. You can also help complete the survey here.
