Through research, the Internet Democracy Foundation for Africa seeks to uncover both the changes brought by technology to democracy-as-we-know-it and the implications of these changes for our visions of progressive social change if they are to remain relevant in the digital age. With the belief that the internet is changing democracy just as irrevocably as it is changing dictatorships, and working on a range of issues related to freedom of expression and the internet, the Internet Democracy Foundation for Africa has done research surrounding internet governance, laws relating to internet rights, and gender-based abuse faced by women online in Uganda and Africa as a continent.
