Bridging the Divides

Ineke Buskens hosted a pre-conference wiki for the ICTD2010 conference, hosted by the ICT4D Collective at Royal Holloway, University of London. The wiki was themed ‘Bridging the Divides’.

The Pre-conference wiki was a space in which people could virtually share their perspectives on ICTs and development. These insights where then put forward in discussions at the conference in a special ‘Pre-conference Interview room’. The issues tackled bordered around;

1) What are the ICT4D Research Needs in the developing world?
2) What action projects have taken place in the developing world that were actually successful research projects?
3) Questioning ICT4D: context, practice and realities
