Human Development and Global Advancements through Information Communication Technologies

Book Description

Technology’s role in facilitating and furthering human development is of equal significance to its role in promoting inequality and tension between groups and individuals. Human Development and Global Advancements through Information Communication Technologies: New Initiatives investigates the role of ICT in advancing economic, social, and political development as well as the potential setbacks experienced as a result of introducing new initiatives. This publication offers strategies for continued societal growth through technology and provides historical perspectives on the processes, procedures, and behaviors that have been impacted as a result of ICT programs.
