Virtual band-aids for actual scars? The impact of ICTs on victims of violence

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to inform the audience of existing literature (case studies and policy analysis) on the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in impacting women who are subjected to violence in the developing world. Critiques and alternative approaches to empowering and advancing the social, political, and economic status of women will also be introduced through both policy-related and practical means.

The objectives of the study include:
1) Highlighting the beneficial role of ICT implementation and its impact on female victims of violence;
2) Highlighting the challenges and disadvantages of ICT implementation in the developing world;
3) Highlighting the challenges and disadvantages of ICT implementation targeting victims of violence;
4) Differentiating between ICT implementation in formal and non-formal educational contexts;
5) Offering several policy-related suggestions to improve and advance the role of ICTs in empowering and advancing the status of women in the developing world;
6) Offering several practical solutions to improve and advance the role of ICTs in empowering and advancing the status of women in the developing world.

Since the expanse of existing literature addressing the role of ICTs in impacting marginalized and disadvantaged populations--particularly victims of violence is limited in scope, this study will rely on a combination of frameworks: 1) UNIFEM's international human rights framework for addressing violence against women; "challenges and possibilities" specific to the role of ICTs for education, social justice, and development (Vrasidas, Zemblyas, & Glass, 2009); and 3) critical theories relevant to education, development, and feminist theory.

This presentation is a review and analysis of secondary data sources available in both print and/or electronic formats (i.e., journal articles, periodicals, literature reviews, case studies, statistical databases, and relevant state and international policy and/or legal documents).
