The 2019 event will be held Thursday, August 22 through Friday, August 23 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Atlas Network is a nonprofit organisation that strengthens the freedom movement around the globe by connecting more than 450 independent partners in over 95 countries that share the vision of a free, prosperous and peaceful world.
With ASFL as the co-host, Africa Liberty Forum brings together friends of the freedom movement across Africa to discuss challenges facing the region and to learn from one another how to most effectively advance free-market reforms.
The event will feature dialogues on the importance of rule of law and human rights, fighting corruption and advancing property rights, government accountability, careers in advancing freedom across the continent, and more. Attendees will learn from distinguished speakers and participate in interactive sessions to strengthen civil society efforts to move public policy in the direction of greater freedom.
At the Africa Liberty Awards Dinner, Atlas Network will announce the winners of the Regional Liberty Awards, which celebrate the most successful projects by Atlas Network partners.
