Community in Tension (CiT)

Parker, Marlon, Wills, Gary and Wills, Julia (2008) Community in Tension (CiT) s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The development and availability of Information Communication Technology (ICT) impacts many sectors yet a digital divide is still present amongst citizens in communities. Not only is there a digital divide evident but also many other factors that causes tension in communities. This paper defines a Community in Tension (CiT) as a community where the wellbeing of its citizens is being threatened. This provides an opportunity to use these available ICTs in communities and have it locally appropriated to empower the citizens and stabilise these communities.
