WEBINAR: Protecting Democracy in the Digital Age: Views from two continents

The European Union is finalising several critical policy frameworks, notably the Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy, the Digital Services Act, and the internal-facing European Democracy Action Plan.

As the impact of these new mechanisms will be felt beyond Europe, on Wednesday, March 24th,  the Kofi Annan Foundation has convened a panel of experts, as part of our #KAFDialogues series, to explore the challenges and opportunities for democracy, politics and digital technologies in Europe and Africa.
