Bridging the North-­‐South Divide in Mobile Research: Assumptions, Questions, and Strategies - Roundtable

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We propose a space for an invigorating debate about whether the kinds of questions adressed by M4D research are, in the ways that they are commonly framed, less ‘relevant’ for the global north; and why the work done in the north, even when oriented towards socioeconomic outcomes, are not often in conversation with ‘4D’ research. Are the different contexts that radically opposed, and how might research so influenced by geographic frames be bridged?
