Case studies

The Civic Tech Innovation Network (CTIN) is welcoming any case studies that focus on topics related to civic tech. The African Civic Tech Case Studies is a project aimed at building and creatively disseminating an aggregation of African case studies on civic tech practices and lessons from various contexts. We would like to share your work and lessons far and wide with our community of practice. This is part of our purpose as CTIN – to build up and strengthen the civic tech community in South Africa and the rest of Africa through sharing and engagement.
