The right to freely express oneself is a fundamental right.
Each week David Souter comments on an important issue for APC members and others concerned about the Information Society. This week’s blog post looks at how we think about the internet and how it is governed.

AFRINIC is home to Africa’s regional internet registry, based in Mauritius, and has three other operational offices in South Africa (technical operations), Egypt (backup and disaster recovery) and Ghana (training coordination).
David Souter is a longstanding associate of APC, and has worked for more than 20 years on the relationship between information and communications technologies (ICTs) and public policy, particularly in the areas of development, the environment, governance (including internet governance) and rights.
“I find the voice of Africa to be quiet on issues of internet governance”: An interview with Pria Chetty
At the recently concluded 2016 edition of the African School on Internet Governance (AfriSIG), APCNews spoke with Pria Chetty, the regional director of EndCode, who formed part of this year’s faculty team.
APCNews spoke with Bob Ochieng, ICANN stakeholder engagement manager for Africa and a faculty member for the 2016 African School on Internet Governance, to gather his impressions on the experience. Ochieng had high praise for the diversity represented by this year’s AfriSIG class, as well as a few pointers for future editions of the School.
This year’s African School on Internet Governance included a practicum exercise coordinated by Avri Doria, a highly respected member of both the internet technical community and the global internet governance community, as well as an APC member and volunteer.
