A core corporate mission for Publiks Inc — as expressly established by its Founder and President, Alvan A Ikoku — is to enhance public awareness of, public knowledge of, and public interest in peoples and societies in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australasia/Oceania, and Europe — as well as local and global relations among these peoples and their societies.

A primary means by which Publiks Inc carries out this overarching mission is Publiks.Org — an online site featuring several integrated Publiks Services — where visitors and users may have access to Publiks feeds and published contributions from Publiks, as well as to community spaces.

Note that, for this reason, regionally defined Publiks sections shall feature content and activity that both cross the typically recognized borders of large areas (e.g. Publiks Americas, Publiks Asia, and Publiks Africa) and also pool, or gather more prominently, when users navigate to sections focusing on areas of more limited dimensions (e.g. Publiks Lagos, Publiks Sydney and Publiks Paris). All such sections of Publiks.Org shall in all cases be developed as, and remain, fully integrated with all Services, Products, and domains of Publiks.Org.

The list we provide above will be regularly updated, with links added to the appropriate subheadings, as each Publiks Service and section becomes available and integrated on Publiks.Org. For more detailed information on each Service and section, including their further development and your feedback, please do see relevant notices at Publiks.Info.
