*AIS SIG GlobDev 2015 Pre-ECIS Workshop*

Münster, Germany

May 26, 2015

*Title of the Workshop*

*Conversations on Development: can ICTs make a difference in Climate,
Political and Health Disturbances?*

*Description *

The issue of the role of ICTs in the various dimensions of national
Development has long been considered a significant area of IS research that
has attracted the interests of IS researchers at several European
universities as well as other universities in developed and developing
economies.  In the past ten years, the access, use and innovations in ICTs
to bring people in the remotest and poorest parts of the world as active
participants in the global economy, has made the study of ICTs for
Development an important means of understanding how improvements in
people’s live may or may not take place though IS implementations. Further
in parallel with this increased access & use of ICTs has been the
increasing occurrence of natural disasters due to climate disturbance,
major healthcare crises, and civil wars that pose significant threats to
the stability and self-determination agendas of developing countries &
communities. An issue that is worthy of consideration is the role of ICTs
in facilitating the empowerment of such countries to achieve
self-determination and other development goals at the national and
individual levels.
