E-society and E-citizens: from Technology Transfer to Human Empowerment and Development

The internet means access to information; it also means voice and representation. But many communities around the world, particularly in developing nations, lack such access. This can be a huge barrier in meaningful and transformative public participation. Mark Graham of the Oxford Internet Institute will explore at his #KAPTalks the digital gap and how to conquer it once and for all. Join live at kapuscinskilectures.eu on 9th November at 1 pm CET.
