On 28 January 2021, we are celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Data
Protection Convention 108 with African privacy and data protection
stakeholders.

African regulators and civil society representatives will inform the
participants on latest developments at national, regional and international
level and will touch upon the advantages of Convention 108 for African
countries. The evolution of Convention 108 into the ‘modernised’ Convention
108+ adds a new dimension to international data flows and cooperation
between data protection authorities, and will also be addressed.
