Thoughts Towards a History of ICT4D – and its Future Role

David Souter, from the London School of Economics, gives a presentation as part of the ICT4D Seminar Series.

The presentation will use the history and development of ICT4D – and its relationships with both development policy and the ICT sector – as a framework to critique ICT4D approaches and consider the relevance of ICTs and ICT4D to the post-2015 development agenda.

It will draw, inter alia, on recent work for the World Bank, to assess ICTs in post-conflict reconstruction; for the International Institute for Sustainable Development, to address the relationship between ICTs and sustainability; and for UNCTAD and the UN Commission on Science and Technology for Development, to consider the implications of emerging ICT trends for developmental outcomes.
