|060301: "Information and Communication Technologies for poverty reduction in developing countries"|
|The role of new Information and Communication Technologies for the reduction
of poverty in developing countries (ICT for Development / ICT4D) is a topical
and much discussed subject in practice and science. ICTs are often praised
as means and objective of large-scale growth; however, they are no universal
remedy and must be tested critically and closely for their effects and
implementation in developing countries. The national social, political and
economic setting is just as essential as juridical and cultural conditions.
The thesis should analyse and discuss the general obstacles and chances of ICT for poverty reduction with focus on Subsahara Africa. The following subject areas can be examined in more detail (the IfG.CC is open for further proposals):
An individual main focus for the assignment will be agreed upon with the IfG.CC at the beginning of the diploma thesis.
