ICT, Digital Governance and Citizen Participation Panel Introduction - Columbia University African Diplomatic Forum 2011

2,057 views

Published on

Presented these slides as an introduction to the ICT, Digital Governance, and Citizen Participation panel during Columbia University's African Diplomatic Forum on 11/18/11 (for which I was the moderator).

Panel Description: How is Information Communication Technology (ICT) changing the landscape of media and policy in Africa? From mobile phones, to crisis mapping platforms like Ushahidi, to the recent open data initiative launched by the government of Kenya, the digital age purports to change the way information is disseminated in—and about Africa. This panel will explore the role of ICTs in encouraging transparency, strengthening media, citizen participation, and democracy in Africa.
