Digital Divide in Developing Countries

Nancy Hafkin Gert Nulens
Price: $ 29.95

The technological and political convergence of formerly separate communication areas is offering African countries new opportunities. However, Africa has only taken its first steps on the path toward an information society and is lagging far behind when it is compared to the western countries. It is argued in this book that the way to go is long, difficult, and problematic. Several authors have formulated recommendations that could be helpful to walk this complicated path toward an information society in Africa.

Gert Nulens is a researcher at the Center for Studies on Media Information and Telecommunication. Nancy Hafkin is a senior economic affairs officer at the Development Information Services Division of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. Leo Van Audenhove is doing research on the African Information Society at the Centre for Studies on Media Information and Telecommunication. Bart Commaerts worked as a journalist in Latin America and as a press secretary and advisor on information society policy to the Belgian Vice-Prime Minister.
