Frequently Asked Questions About Conducting a National WSIS Consultation Process
, June 2003
APC’s FAQ about Conducting a National WSIS Process outlines the steps to take and key components in organising a national consultation around ICT policy, in this case specifically the debates raised by the United Nations conference on the Information Society (WSIS). The ‘frequently asked questions’ (FAQ) question & answer format was chosen to home in on some of the key questions we have heard people ask. This is not a completely comprehensive guide to national level ICT policy lobbying, but it provides some useful answers to a civil society organisation that has the interest and initiative to organise an ICT policy-related consultation. The primary target audience is people that are active in using or promoting the use of ICTs in their work, but who have not necessarily been involved in national level policy processes previously.
