Description

"While e-advocacy is fairly well-established in the US, it is also emerging in other countries, both industrialized and non-industrialized. In the non-industrialized world, new strategies for e-advocacy are being developed that take into account relatively low levels of internet penetration, much higher levels of mobile phone penetration, and lots of word-of-mouth networks. Ricken Patel, co-founder of Res Publica and the newly launched Avaaz.org, is a driving force in creating these new opportunities for digital activism to make a difference in countries throughout the world."
