A new bottom-up architecture for development - Case studies in community informatics

2012
Type of resource: 
Notes from the Field

At IT for Change (ITfC), we focus on a grounded analysis and exploration of the possibilities that Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) offer for development interventions, especially in the areas of governance, gender and education. We have endeavoured to demystify technology, de-centre expertise, develop a critical awareness of the politics of techno-pedagogy, and promote collective ownership of  media and information processes at the community level.

Bangalore NGOs to Stage Protest against the Amendments to the RTI Act

ITfC
August
2013
Type of resource: 
Advocacy Statements

IT for Change with CIVIC Bangalore, KRIA Katte, and Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement condemn the proposal to amend the Right to Information Act that the government has undertaken in the monsoon session of the parliament. The amendment is to keep political parties out of its ambit. This challenges the basic principle of the Act which is to maintain transparency and accountability by the government, including the processes of governance which determines functioning of the government. The move of the government to amend the Act only goes to show that political parties are not willing to subject themselves to the transparency law and be open public scrutiny under the Act.

Advocacy Statements

In 2009, IT for Change(ITfC) submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) regarding the imminent expiration of the Joint Project Agreement (JPA) with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).  The submission calls for the U.S. to forgo its unilateral control over critical Internet resources, as ITfC considers the Internet to be a global public resource that should have equal participation by all countries and people in its governance.
