Women's Rights and the Internet in Uganda

This submission is a joint stakeholder contribution to the second cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism for Uganda. This submission focuses on women’s rights and the internet in Uganda. It explores the extent of implementation of the recommendations made in the previous cycle of the UPR and also identifies emerging concerns in Uganda regarding women’s rights online.

This is a joint submission by the Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET), a nongovernmental organisation established in 2000 that promotes the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as tools to share information and address sustainable development issues; the Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA), a non-governmental organisation established in 2004
focusing on research and analysis of information aimed to understand ICT for development (ICT4D) and policy issues in the region; and the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), an international network and non-governmental organisation with consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), established in 1995 and, of which WOUGNET and CIPESA are members, which wants everyone to have access to a free and open internet to improve lives and create a more just world
