The African Network for Information Ethics (ANIE)
ANIE was established in 2007 due to the effort and dedication of a group of scholars, government officials and visionaries across Africa. Together with the support of the international Information Ethics community, ANIE has flourished to over 600 participants across 25 countries globally. In February 2017 the 5th international ANIE conference celebrated the ANIEversary - marking 10 years of active Information Ethics projects in Africa. To view ANIE projects from 2007-2011, please visit the ANIE website.
The original ANIE website, africainfoethics.org, will no longer serve as the main webpage for ANIE and will be deactivated in the future.
The African Centre of Excellence for Information Ethics (ACEIE)
Following the success of the establishment of ANIE, the network saw the value in founding a centre which would function as a hub for the network. The ACEIE was established according to a UP Senate decision on 17 May 2012. Since 2012 the ACEIE coordinates various activities, research projects and communication for ANIE. The ACEIE activities are all based on a formal Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) between the South African Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services and the University of Pretoria. The ACEIE is based at the Department of Information Science within the Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology at the University of Pretoria and is managed according to the policies and procedures of the University of Pretoria.
