Focus Group Seminar on Digital Divide
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Winsome Cheung.
This talk will introduce the topic of the digital divide in developing countries and will discuss various digital inclusion projects aimed at addressing the issue. The Digital Divide is a term that refers to inequalities in access to communications and information technologies, especially among the poor of the developing world. Topics will include telecentres, e-government services and mobile telephony. Examples will be given from a range of countries including India, Brazil, South Africa, Kenya and Bangladesh.
This talk will be chiefly led by Prof. Geoff Walsham, yet other students from other Commonwealth Countries will be present to talk about their personal views on this contentious issue.
This session is the 2nd of a focus group seminar series of topical issues in Commonwealth countries, which provides you the invaluable opportunity to participate in small group discussions and ask the speakers any questions you may have about the topic of interest. You are also, of course, welcome to simply come along and listen to the discussions! However, the numbers of attendees are strictly limited. To book your place, please email Winsome (email@example.com).
This talk is part of the Cambridge University Commonwealth Society series.
