Voices 2.0 – The Arab awakening and practical lessons learned for development practitioners

As part of the 50 year celebration of Swiss Development Cooperation, the North-South Centre of the Swiss Federal Institute for Technology in Zurich dedicated its Annual conference in 2011 to the theme “ICT4d- The Development Impact of Information and Communication Technologies” that included challenges for education, research and policy in ICT4D.

My role was to present lessons learned from the work with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in the realm of strategically integrating ICTs into development programms with specific focus on social and political change witnessed by the so-called Arab Awakening / Arab Spring.

The presentation with policy and research recommendations was titled “Voices 2.0- The Arab awakening and practical lessons learned for development practitioners”.
