Impact 2.0: New mechanisms for linking research and policy - Technical Guidelines

By Cheekay Cinco, Karel Novotný (October 2010, APC )

This guide was developed by The Association for Progressive Communications APC for the project Impact 2.0 – New mechanisms for linking research and policy. The development was supported by Fundación Comunica2. The guide is aimed towards providing the national focal points in Peru, Uruguay and Ecuador with guidelines for how Web 2.0 tools can be used to facilitate participatory policy making process.

The main issues that the guide addresses are:

  • How researchers can effectively and strategically use new information and communication technologies (ICTs), specifically Web 2.0 tools, to publish and publicise their research processes and findings so that they can reach policy makers and activists.
  • How researchers can use Web 2.0 tools to establish links with policy makers and other stakeholders involved in their issues.
  • How researchers can use Web 2.0 tools to encourage discussion and / or debate on issues based on their research findings.

The document is available in hybrid pdf format – you can view it in pdf viewer or open and edit in OpenOffice if you have this OpenOffice plug-in installed (one click install after clicking on “Get It!”).

Internet Governance Forum 2010: Pre-event on human rights

MONTREAL 23 August 2010 (CL for APCNews)

Attempts to get human rights on the internet onto the agenda at the Fifth Internet Governance Forum –the UN conference now in its possibly final edition— which is to take place in September foundered in the face of government resistance. And the IGF agenda for 2010 will focus on development and internet governance. However Vilnius will be the scenario to shape a debate on censorship, freedom of expression and privacy that has been clamouring for attention. APC and partners will hold a discussion on internet governance and human rights immediately before the IGF in Vilnius, Lithuania on September 13.
