APC-IMPACT (India, Malaysia, Pakistan Advocacy for Change through Technology)
The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) has teamed up with members and partners in India, Pakistan and Malaysia to protect and promote human rights on the internet.
Internet-related policies and the ways they are implemented contribute to strengthening human rights online and offline, and support democracy-building. But the gaps in understanding of internet rights by key actors in India, Malaysia, and Pakistan, negatively impacts how rights and freedoms in these countries are exercised.
