In the continuation of the “Advocacy International: Advancing our digital rights agenda for Asia” workshop, the day was spent deep-diving into the United Nations ecosystem: basic information about it, its mechanisms, and the spaces it offers for leveraging international advocacy.
APC kicked off Day 1 of the "Advocacy International: Advancing our digital rights agenda for Asia" workshop, a culmination of discussions on a crucial issue – the representation of more Asian civil society voices in international advocacy spaces.
APC and its partners are delighted to announce the upcoming “Internet Rules: Unboxing digital laws in Southeast Asia 2021” workshop, which will be held on a virtual platform from 20 to 24 September 2021. The deadline for applications has been extended until 23 July.
“Advocacy International: Advancing our digital rights agenda for Asia” is a unique capacity-building opportunity for digital rights defenders to strengthen their skills on advocacy in international spaces for advancing digital rights.

APC congratulates and welcomes Fabrizio Hochschild to his new role as United Nations Envoy on Technology. APC sees the Tech Envoy role as crucial to promoting improved coordination and synergy among different spaces and processes concerning internet governance and global digital cooperation.
Every three years, APC members, through their member representatives on the APC council, elect between four and seven directors from among council representatives nominated by members. Here we introduce the members of the new board and share their reflections on what lies ahead for APC.
