The Case of Kenya 2017 and Zimbabwe 2018 Elections

This report looks at how Internet freedom is linked to electoral and other political processes by analyzing the legal and policy framework governing information control in Kenya and Zimbabwe. It looks particularly at the controls leading to the August 2017 elections in Kenya and the July 2018 elections in Zimbabwe. The aim is to contribute evidence to the conversation on the relationship between the Internet, and human rights and the wider democratic processes. Therefore, our main research objective is to analyze information controls in Kenya and the region in a systematic manner; in order to identify existing legal structures and policy motivations, and the technical nature of these controls through Internet shutdowns and other forms of censorship.
