The Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (SPIDER) is calling for chapter proposals for its next annual anthology which will focus on “Transparency through ICT – empowering people and communities”. The intended target audience is both Swedish and development community partners, including civil society. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
- Mobiles as a means to fight corruption
- E- governance – fighting corruption through systemic change
- Expose – investigate – disseminate: looking at Wikileaks and similar services
- ICT as a tool for increasing transparency of national and international aids flows
- Transparency without users – the need to empower citizens and civil society
Proposal deadline is 15 March with chapters to be submitted by 15 May.
