Communications, media and promotions
APC’s communications, media and promotions management system is split up into a number of work areas:
Content production and publication
APC’s niche is ICTs for social justice and sustainable development. We publish our stories and publications on this website and in our twice-monthly newsletter APCNews and her sister newsletters APCNoticias in Spanish and APCNouvelles in French. We focus on telling real-life stories of people using technology to promote development and social equality.
We produce many publications each year. Major publications include Global Information Society Watch. Our specialisation in the last few years are news articles which popularise the findings of our original research often carried out in areas where few people have a handle on what’s happening. For example this research on digital migration in Africa or this research on the opening up of spectrum worldwide which could improve internet access for millions.
Our original content adheres to a multilingual editorial policy and language-specific house style guides.
APC has been providing original content in English and Spanish on ICTs for development and social justice since 1999. This website launched in early 2008 moved us into content production in French.
We have produced training materials in Arabic and working with APC members the internet rights charter has been translated into more than twenty languages including Russian, Bengali, Urdu, Khmer, Macedonian and the African languages of Jju and Hausa.
APC is a major reference point for the media world-wide as the world’s oldest, progressive, international network promoting the use of internet for a better, more just world.
The communications team is responsible for ensuring the reliability of APC’s communications platforms, email and lists.
Monitoring and evaluation
The team carries out periodic evaluations of APC communications vehicles [Ed. private link] to analyse the extent to which we are meeting our primary communications goals.
