“Litigating Free Speech Cases in African Regional Courts”
A talk by Nani Jansen Reventlow,
Fellow, Berkman-Klein Center for Internet & Society
Associate Tenant, Doughty Street Chambers
Please join us for a discussion with Nani Jansen Reventlow on the topic of regional courts in Africa and freedom of expression cases in particular. As the head of the Media Legal Defence Initiative’s global litigation practice, Reventlow led litigation that resulted in the first freedom of expression judgments at the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the East African Court of Justice. She has also led cases before the European Court of Human Rights, the UN Human Rights Committee, the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, and several African regional courts.
This event is co-sponsored by the Human Rights Program, the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, and HLS Advocates for Human Rights.
