At the end of 2015, the Millennium Development Goals will be replaced by the post-2015 development agenda (PTDA). The foundational content is in place for this new agenda, which will be the single most-important force shaping the future of international development. In planning our priorities for development informatics research ? the academic study of ICT4D policy and practice ? we should therefore pay close attention to the PTDA.This paper undertakes a comparative analysis of the post-2015… 

ICT4D 2016: New Priorities for ICT4D Policy, Practice and WSIS in a Post-2015 World

In 2016, the Millennium Development Goals will be replaced by the post-2015 development agenda (PTDA). The foundational content is in place for this new agenda, which will be the single

ICT4D research: reflections on history and future agenda

The purpose of this paper is to take stock of the ICT4D research field at this important juncture in time, when ICTs are increasingly pervasive and when many different disciplines are involved in researching the area.

Assessing South African ICT4D research outputs: a journal review

It is found that while South Africa has a prominent presence in ICT4D journals, this prominence is concentrated in one research institution and one ICT2D journal, and a surprising finding is that cooperation among research institutions that leads to co-authored publications is very low, even among neighbouring institutions.

Holistically Placing the ICT Artefact in Capability Approach

A framework that holistically places the Information and Communication Technology Artefact in Capability Approach (CA) and revealed that the ICT-artefact can holistically be conceptualised within three of CA’s concepts: under material resources as a capability input; as a new category of conversion factors; and as a component within the structural context.

Doing ICT4D research is especially important today, in virtue of a juncture of history that problematizes its older assumptions, noting that the old theoretical grounds of the field do not apply anymore today.

Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D) research: the quest for a shared conceptual framework continues

A non-prescriptive, dynamic conceptual framework for ICT4D is proposed based on a literature review and an informal expert interview and the results were used to refine the initial framework from the Computer Science and Information Systems perspectives.
