SHORT PAPER ON GLOBAL A.I. GOVERNANCE
Recommendations for the UN’s advisory board on artificial intelligence
ALT prepared a short paper on global AI governance and the African context to support the work of the UN’s High-Level Advisory Board on AI. The paper outlines fundamental challenges in AI governance, emerging trends in key jurisdictions such as the European Union and the United States, and the state of AI governance in Africa. It concludes with recommendations for the High-Level Advisory Board on AI in developing a global governance regime that benefits all states and ensures Africa is not left behind.

This work was first carried out in the context of the Africa Digital Rights Fund (ADRF) with support from the Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA), and continues to be supported through ALT’s public interest fund.
