Boundary Objects to Guide Sustainable Technology-Supported Participatory Development for Poverty Alleviation in the Context of Digital Divides | Blake & Quiros Garzon, 2012

Boundary Objects to Guide Sustainable Technology-Supported Participatory Development for Poverty Alleviation in the Context of Digital Divides | Blake & Quiros Garzon, 2012 | ICT4D Denmark | Scoop.it

There is a growing body of evidence to show that sound implementation of information and communications technologies (ICTs) can benefit development goals. However these benefits are still far from reaching those who are most impoverished. In part, this lack of effectiveness is attributed to a lack of clarity in the theory and practice of ICT for development (or ICT4D as it is commonly known). We have sought to address these concerns by reviewing a range of ‘boundary objects’ – conceptual frameworks and participation processes – that have been used to support sustainable development projects with multiple stakeholder interests. Using Sen’s ‘capability approach’ as an organizing principle, we have considered how these boundary objects can be combined to provide a comprehensive framework for sustainable technology-supported participatory development to alleviate poverty.
