Sublimity and Solutions: Problematization in ICT for Development Perspectives
This essay situates ICT for Development (ICT4D) perspectives in relationship to the neo-liberal rationality characteristic of the WTO, World Bank, and G8 economic frameworks. Using James Carey's (2005) pragmatist perspective and recent work on problematization, the essay proceeds in three steps: 1) it situates the emergence, role, and organization of the UN ICT Task Force in amplifying ICT4D perspectives, 2) it discusses the importance of problematization in the articulation of communication to international development frameworks, and 3) it recommends supplementing studies of the digital sublime with a pragmatist perspective better able to illuminate the practices of transnational policy networks.
