Über dieses Buch

This volume presents analyses of data protection systems and of 26 jurisdictions with data protection legislation in Africa, as well as additional selected countries without comprehensive data protection laws. In addition, it covers all sub-regional and regional data privacy policies in Africa. Apart from analysing data protection law, the book focuses on the socio-economic contexts, political settings and legal culture in which such laws developed and operate. It bases its analyses on the African legal culture and comparative international data privacy law.

In Africa protection of personal data, the central preoccupation of data privacy laws, is on the policy agenda. The recently adopted African Union Cyber Security and Data Protection Convention 2014, which is the first and currently the only single treaty across the globe to address data protection outside Europe, serves as an illustration of such interest. In addition, there are data protection frameworks at sub-regional levels for West Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa. Similarly, laws on protection of personal data are increasingly being adopted at national plane. Yet despite these data privacy law reforms there is very little literature about data privacy law in Africa and its recent developments. This book fills that gap.

Stimmen zum Buch

“The proper use of section headings … is greatly helpful for processing the substance in the first read and locating the information when needed later on. The comprehensive, detailed lists of references, legislations, cases and additional resources … make them competent as convenient reference books for students, researchers and practitioners studying data protection law in those jurisdictions. … serve as valuable sources of comparative materials, and thus help gain a better understanding of other data protection regimes.” (Jiahong Chen, International Journal of Law and Information Technology, Vol. 25 (3), 2017)
