Cold War Legacies in Contemporary Institutionalized Thinking on Development Communication: A Case Study of Two UNDP and EP ICT4D Reports

Date created
Author: Xue, Ming
Although information and communications technologies for development (ICT4D) is situated in a globalized Information Age nominally marked by a shift away from the dominant paradigm of development, Cold War-era ideological fallout continue to linger in development communication literature describing ICT4D. A critical hermeneutic analysis of two ICT4D reports, one commissioned by the European Parliament (EP) and one by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), delineates the Cold War legacies in contemporary supranational organizations’ institutionalized thinking on development communication.
