  • Exploring the Meanings of Community Multimedia Centers in Mozambique: A
           Social Representation Perspective
    • Authors: Isabella Rega, Sara Vannini, Emanuele Fino, Lorenzo Cantoni
      Abstract: This article presents extensive research conducted in Mozambique that aims to deeply understand how different social groups understand community multimedia centers (CMCs), which are structures combining a community radio and a telecenter. The social representations theory was adopted to interpret narratives of 231 interviewees from 10 Mozambican provinces. Interviewees included representatives of initiating agencies, local staff members, CMC users (both the radio and telecenter components), users of only the community radio, and community members not using the CMCs. Following the analysis of transcribed interviews, six main clusters were identified, each of them shedding light on a specific understanding of a CMC. These are discussed according to a set of sociodemographic variables. This study suggests that the social representations theory is a valuable framework to provide an integrated view of ICT4D interventions by giving a voice to local perspectives without overlooking the initiating agencies’ expectations.

  • ICT 4 the MDGs? A Perspective on ICTs’ Role in Addressing Urban
           Poverty in the Context of the Millennium Development Goals
    • Authors: Siobhán Clarke, Gillian Wylie, Hans Zomer
      Abstract: Since the year 2000, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have anchored efforts to combat global poverty. As we near 2015, this article assesses ICTs’ role in reaching the goals, with an emphasis on urban poverty. Over the lifespan of the MDGs, debate about ICTs and development has grown. At one pole of this debate are those who see ICTs as enabling rapid growth and citizen empowerment; at the other pole are those who warn that “technical fixes” cannot overcome the historic and structural causes of poverty. In this article, using the organizing framework of the eight MDGs, we discuss these debates by reviewing examples of ICT projects that aim to further the goals’ realization. Many of these projects suggest that ICTs are useful, particularly with respect to increasing information and enhancing services, a common theme throughout this article. However, we also raise critical queries about the allure of “technology-boosterism” (Heeks, 2010, p. 629). These range from questioning the measurable impact and sustainability of ICT4D to the vision of development embedded in ICT4D and whether new technologies can subvert the underlying causes of global poverty. Our article shows that, while ICTs can be enablers for developmental processes, we must listen to communities in poverty when deciding how ICTs should feature in the post-2015 agenda.

  • Unintended Technology Transfer to Chinese Software Firms from Japan
           Through Offshore Software Development
    • Authors: Mita Takahashi, Nobuhiro Takahashi
      Abstract: Since the end of the 1990s, some Chinese software firms have undertaken offshore software development for Japanese firms. They are engaged not only in coding and testing, but also in design. The results of our interviews with Chinese and Japanese firms show that Chinese firms have acquired design skills through these joint developments. Japanese firms did not intentionally implement technology transfer, but the practice of offshore development did have this effect. In addition, we identify that the main reasons Japanese firms entrusted software design to Chinese firms were quality control and cost reduction of their software development projects. Currently, Chinese firms are employing the transferred skills for their own domestic projects, indicating that the export of software services has contributed significantly to the expansion of the domestic market. We conclude that China should focus on both domestic supply and export of software services as a strategy for developing its own software industry.

  • International Migrant Workers’ Use of Mobile Phones to Seek Social
           Support in Singapore
    • Authors: Arul Chib, Holley A. Wilkin, Sri Ranjini Mei Hua
      Abstract: International migrants often need social support to deal with an unfamiliar environment and reduce stress caused by prevailing attitudes in their host country, as well as that induced by distance and separation from their family. This study investigates whether mobile phones facilitate or inhibit migrants’ ability to seek the social support needed to reduce the stress they experience in their host country. Further, gender differences are examined and discussed. A quantitative survey of men (n 5 56), primarily Bangladeshis working in blue-collar occupations, and women (n 5 60), primarily Filipina domestics, was conducted in Singapore. For women, mobile use alleviated stress by increasing social support; emotional support had the greatest impact on their psychological well-being. Male migrant workers were more likely to experience stress the more they used their mobile phones and when receiving increased emotional support. This finding is in contrast to traditionally held assumptions about the beneficial impacts of mobile phones. We caution against treating immigrants as a homogeneous group, and recommend inclusion of variables such as gender to understand the role of technology-mediated social support in alleviating migrant stress. We further propose that policies and programs facilitating transnational communication for low-income migrants need to be examined carefully in terms of their unintended impacts.
