The field of ICTD Research is ripe for reframing. This workshop is an opportunity to begin that effort. 

The asymmetries of the world are currently mirrored in the aims, practice and outcomes of too much ICTD research. The consequence is that people who might benefit from creative use of current and emerging technologies are excluded from the social processes and benefits of innovation and knowledge production. The ICTD research community’s widespread dissatisfaction with this situation haunts ICTD gatherings.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners working at the nexus of ICT and development for social change to draft and articulate critical alternatives for future research that is sufficiently emancipatory, inclusive and oriented towards sustainable futures as to be described as ICT for Development.

Please join us in Aarhus to begin this rethinking.
