Engaging with the Digital

Digital communications are everywhere and yet policymakers are still struggling to respond with appropriate structures and governance models. It's necessary to move beyond celebrating greater accessibility and affordability in order to tackle fundamental questions about ownership and regulation as well as ethical questions about privacy, security and surveillance.

Strengthening Indigenous Communication Networks in Colombia

WACC partner Resguardo Indigena Paez de Corinto is an Indigenous civil society organization established in 1986. It works in Colombia’s Cauca department, one of the country’s regions most affected by armed and social conflict. The organization was established to assert Indigenous governance in areas historically populated by Nasa indigenous communities. Over the years, the organization has developed a “life plan” or “development plan” to guide the way it exercises Indigenous governance. Under this plan, the organization operates a series of programs on health, education, youth engagement, economic development, indigenous security, legislation, among others. It serves a population of approximately 13,000 people.

Dialogic communication is at the heart the organization’s “life plan”. The organization has developed a communication network called Wej’Xia Ka’Senxi through which it fosters Nasa culture, promotes community engagement, strengthens the delivery of its social services. This project seeks to build the capacity of 20 young people from the communities of Corinto and Lopez to contribute to the communication network.
