CONTRACT POSITION AT APC: Global Internet Rights Coordinator

Since 1990, the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) -

social movements around the world to harness information and communication

that focuses on creating resources and opportunities for discussion and 
about the impact of Internet policy decisions on civil society, through civil
society engagement and capacity-building, as well as by intervening in key
policy decision-making fora.

Citizens and organisations that want to ensure that the Internet remains a tool
and a venue for promoting social and environmental justice, development and
democracy, are struggling to navigate the terrain of global, regional, and
national Internet governance, policy and regulation. They know that the 
presents governance challenges, and they also know that they do not want their
rights infringed. But they frequently do not know which issues are on the
agenda, who is debating and deciding them, how their lives and work could be
affected, and how to get involved. APC wants to change this situation.
