ICT and prevention of violence

In this video, the expert in citizen security and Human Rights, Aldo Magoga, reflects about the debate on the inequality/violence system in the context of Information and Communication Technologies. These contributions are important clues to enrich the debate and consider alternatives for action.

Magoga makes reference to Umberto Eco to explain how, while television diminishes the gap between rich and poor, the internet and social networks do exactly the opposite. This is related to the capacities of countries and the use that countries make of information and communication technology.

We recommend the Policy Brief written by Magoga and available in the resources: “How data and ICT can be effective allies to prevent youth violence in the countries of northern Central America.”
