ARTICLE 19’s Team Digital is looking for public interest advocates to join the 2024-2025 Internet of
Rights (IoR) Fellowship. This is a 12-month fellowship, beginning in April 2024.

Since 2014, ARTICLE 19 (A19) has been a pioneer in introducing and strengthening human rights
considerations in the design, development, and deployment of Internet infrastructure technologies by
participating in global Internet governance bodies where technical standards and policy development
happens. In doing so, A19 has carved out pathways for civil society engagement in these bodies;
however, there remains the need for greater, more diverse, and more sustainable civil society
participation.

In its eighth year, the IoR Fellowship will equip and support a diverse community of
advocates working on behalf of civil society with the tools they need to carry out long-term engagement to set the technical policies and standards that define the global Internet.

The Fellowship runs for 12 months, beginning on April 1, 2024. During this year, each fellow will work
closely with their mentor—a designated member of A19’s Team Digital. All fellows follow one of three
tracks: Censorship, Connectivity, or Datafication.

To apply, please submit the materials detailed in the ToR as a single .zip file to [email protected] by Friday, March 15.

Successful applicants will be invited to interview with A19 staff at the end March 2024.

We will be prioritising applicants based in the Global South. Women, and other individuals that identify as part of underrepresented groups in Internet governance are especially encouraged to apply.

ARTICLE 19 Eastern Africa is the leading non-governmental organization promoting and protecting freedom of expression and access to information in Eastern Africa, both offline and online. The organization envisions a region where all people can speak freely, actively participate in public life, and enjoy media freedom without fear, censorship, or persecution.

ARTICLE 19 Eastern Africa with the support of The Fund for Global Human Rights, convened a panel of researchers from HAKI Africa, The Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANET), and The Centre for Human Rights and Policy Studies (CHRIPS) to undertake research interrogating the impact of counter-terrorism (CT) and the prevention of violent extremism (PVE) and similar national security measures on civic space in Kenya with a view to informing interventions that enhance greater accountability for violations and ensure an open civic space free from unjustified restrictions under the guise of security.

We desire to reach out to the general public to disseminate the findings of the research and raise awareness on the subject matter. ARTICLE 19 Eastern Africa, therefore, welcomes proposals from Consultants (creative individuals, organizations, firms, collectives, and coalitions)to repackage the findings from the research mentioned above into a popular version that is easily consumable by a wide array of audiences through creative communication (caricature and/or infographics and/or, comics, and/or illustrations) among other artistic expressions as agreed upon between ARTICLE 19 and the successful applicant.

To apply, please submit the materials detailed in the ToR attached as a single .zip file to [email protected] and copy [email protected] and [email protected] by Thursday February 29.
