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.

Réforme des télécommunications: Cas du Cameroun

By Sylvie SIYAM, Serge KUATE, Serge DAHO, (February 2010, APC )

Le processus de restructuration du secteur des télécommunications au Cameroun a démarré en juin 1995 avec l’admission de ce secteur au programme de privatisation. Il s’est traduit par la mise sur pied d’un cadre juridique et institutionnel permettant d’assurer le désengagement de l’État de certains segments et l’ouverture du secteur à l’initiative privée. Ce qui a permis l’entrée dans le secteur de nombreux opérateurs publics et privés. Par contre certains opérateurs, des prix inabordables ont aussi fait surgir des opérateurs informels.
