Seyram Avle

Seyram Avle

This report is the second of three reports funded through the ADAPT project that explore how data is used and abused by governments and non-state actors alike, and how users can better advocate for their privacy.

The report based on research conducted by Seyram Avle, an Assistant Professor of Global Digital Media at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst,  aims to provide policy makers, activists, academics, and other stakeholders with synthesized findings on how specific practices stemming from digitization in Kenya engender certain data practices and what kinds of protections citizens and consumers have. This report is part of a two-country analysis that also explores data practices in Nigeria.
