Ecuador holds first national meeting on internet governance

MAURITIUS 26 November 2014 (Leila Nachawati for APCNews)

While the importance of universalising internet access and use becomes increasingly recognised, reflection on the concrete aspects of internet governance is often missing. This is why APC organises events like the National Meeting on Internet Governance – Ecuador, which will take place on 27 November.

South Sudan: The #OSJUBA event stresses early moves by net activists

Imagine a city torn by war, overwhelmed with daily influx of people from the countryside, becoming the capital of a country from one day to the next. And then picture crazy computer people ruffled together in an abandoned supermarket, thousands of kilometres away, in another city, trying to fix the first city. These two images put together are called #OSJUBA. OS for open source and Juba for the capital of the latest country in the world, South Sudan.

Human rights and the internet - A review of perceptions in human rights organisations

By David Souter (March 2012, APC )

This report, commissioned by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), is concerned with the relationship between human rights and the internet; and with perceptions of the internet, its impact on human rights and the concept of internet rights within mainstream rights organisations. It pays particular attention to the rights encapsulated in Articles 18, 19 and 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (freedoms of conscience, expression and association). The study forms part of APC’s work on internet rights and freedom of expression and, in particular, the “Internet rights are human rights” project.
