Through collaboration with other actors in the space, we bring discussions on emerging and critical issues on technology and society to the parliament and other public spaces.

Partnerships & Collaborations

  Our ongoing endeavours are sustained by our extensive network of collaborative partnerships with both funding and implementing entities.

Who We Are

Centre for Epistemic Justice (CEJ) is a public interest consortium, formed through a collaboration of reputable academics and researchers from all over Africa, and is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya. We provide a platform for African researchers to address the historical issues of knowledge and data justice through research in Sub Saharan Africa. We believe that a lack of knowledge justice is an avenue that is often exploited to promote sexism, racism, ageism, and other x-isms, that further entrench the marginalization of the minoritized groups. We therefore promote research methodologies, that are informed by African priorities and values, and complemented by global best practices, treating the African populations as sovereign people with legitimate claims to data and knowledge.
