Welcome to ACA2K!

The African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) Project, which ran from 2007 to 2011, probed the relationship between national copyright environments and access to learning materials in African countries. The project looked at this relationship within an access to knowledge (A2K) framework -- a framework that regards the protection and promotion of user access as central objectives of copyright law.

This project, supported by Canada's IDRC and South Africa's Shuttleworth Foundation and managed by the LINK Centre at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, had research nodes in eight African countries: Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda.

The follow-on project to ACA2K, launched in 2011, is the Open African Innovation Research and Training (Open A.I.R.) Project, based at the University of Cape Town. Go to Open A.I.R.
