Surveillance Law in Africa: a Review of Six Countries

Published on 21 October 2021

This review provides the first comparative analysis of African legal surveillance frameworks.

The study identifies nine core principles derived from existing guidelines as an analytical framework to identify opportunities to strengthen privacy protection, while narrowly targeting surveillance on the most serious crimes. Six detailed country reports are synthesised in this comparative analysis to produce a series of actionable recommendations for policy, practice and further research.
