We are a group of Communication for Development (ComDev) students from Malmö University who wish to discuss how information communication technologies (ICTs) and new media play a role in enhancing participatory development and improving the efficiency of humanitarian work. Digital ComDev is our collaborative blog aimed at furthering an understanding of how NGO’s and practitioners use and produce development strategies via this means of communication. Who is in charge? How is the message affected by the medium in which it is sent? Can the audience participate in their own ‘development’? What is the impact of ICTs on developing countries?
A combination of experience and academia will be transmitted in the opinions, insights and personal views of what we ourselves produce.
