Internet intermediary liability: Towards evidence-based policy and regulatory reform to ensure free expression and access to information on the internet
APC is hosting a workshop on “Internet intermediary liability: towards evidence-based policy and regulatory reform to ensure free expression and access to information on the internet” in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Internet is having a tremendous impact on freedom of expression and other human rights across the African continent, offering social, political and economic opportunities.

OneWorld platform for Souteast Europe and feminist website ženskaposla.ba have once again this year, (proud to say – the sixth consecutive), joined forces in Take Back the Tech! campaign.
Take Back the Tech! campaign just completed a successful campaign as part of 16 Days of Activism to End Gender Violence. This year’s campaign focused on how concepts of public and private affect ICTs and violence against women. Campaigners around the world led events, created eye-catching graphics and penned useful documents.
