New ICT and citizen-led governance in Africa/FrontlineSMS:Radio

New ICT and citizen-led governance in Africa/FrontlineSMS:Radio

CGHR has launched a two-year research collaboration with the team behind FrontlineSMS to examine whether and how innovations in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are enriching citizen-led governance in Africa. Our approach is inspired by two main tenets: that an understanding of ICTs’ potential to reconfigure citizen-state relations in Africa has to be grounded in empirical evidence; and that new frameworks are needed to capture the ways in which ICTs interact with the unique structures and practices characterising governance in Africa. The project will analyse the extent to which these interactions have practical implications on flows of information dealing with social issues, as well as on the access and the quality of public services and goods.
