The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) is South Africa’s premier research institute on international issues. As an independent, non-governmental think tank, SAIIA has a long and proud history of providing thought leadership in Africa.

SAIIA requires support in data privacy to ensure all personal information is collected, stored and processed in compliance with the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA - ACT NO. 4 OF 2013) which will be enforced 01 July 2021 in South Africa. As SAIIA communicates with an international audience, regulations such as GDPR must also be taken into consideration. The volunteer will assist with capacity development of staff in regards to data privacy.
We actively support and encourage people of all backgrounds and abilities to volunteer internationally and aim to make the program as accessible and inclusive as possible. - Find out more
