Training Resource Hub

We’ve developed a Training Resource Hub, collating all our training materials into one easy-to-use site. The Hub is organised into ten themes relevant to freedom of expression online. Resources can be filtered by region, theme, or resource type, with some materials available in French, Spanish, Italian, German and Portuguese.

 

Digital Rights Advocates Project

Our Digital Rights Advocates Project aims to strengthen the capacity of lawyers in East, West and Southern Africa. It does this through facilitating litigation surgeries, bringing together local lawyers to develop their skills and share their experiences in litigating cases related to freedom of expression online. As part of this project, we have also developed training materials on digital rights which form the basis of our introductory and advanced litigation surgeries.
