The Internet
Governance Forum (Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is a forum for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue on how the internet is run. It was set up at the end of 2005 by the United Nations Secretary-General following a resolution made by governments at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).

stability and development of the internet”. We've found that the IGF is
an experimental and influential policy forum for achieving our mission
(open, universal and afforable access to the internet for all people)
and so it's a global space that we've prioritised. Next week we'll be
in Hyderabad, India, where we'll be advocating for the adoption of
policies and regulation that ensure equitable and affordable access,

APC
at the Internet Governance Forum in India

MONTEVIDEO (KB and KAH for APCNews)
- At the first Internet Governance Forum (IGF), “access to the
internet” emerged as an issue of common concern and priority to all
stakeholders. At the second IGF the business, civil society and
technical communities worked together to reach a consensus on what
should be done to increase access to the internet across the world.
“Reaching the next billion” is now one of the priority themes for the
upcoming third IGF – with participants working together to move from
debate and discussion to a manifesto for action. Find out more and
where APC will be. class="more">More >>

Take
Back the Tech: take action - online and off - to end violence against
women

creative and informed use of information and communication technologies

to know about technology to best use it for our activism, we have to
understand it to protect ourselves and others, and to keep shaping an
internet for all. From 25 November to 10 December it’s time once again
to “Take Back the Tech!” and use ICTs to end violence against women. href="http://www.apc.org/en/node/7502" class="more">More

tool for furthering their causes. APC member in South Korea, Jinbonet,
