New book on African Data Privacy Laws

A new book—African Data Privacy Laws (ed) Alex Makulilo— has been recently published by Springer. This volume presents analyses of data protection systems in 20 jurisdictions in Africa. In addition, it covers all sub-regional and regional data privacy policies in Africa including the recently adopted African Union Cyber Security and Data Protection Convention 2014.
Apart from analysing data protection law, the book focuses on the socio-economic contexts, political settings and legal culture in which privacy laws developed and operate in Africa. It bases its analyses on the African legal culture and comparative international data privacy law. This book promises to be a valuable source of literature about privacy and data protection law in Africa and its recent developments of which I am happy to have contributed the chapter on Nigeria.
