Abstract [en]

There has been considerable discussion in the ICT4D community and beyond about the meaning of ‘development’. Recently, social and human interpretations have gained some ground in competition with more traditional economic ones. This paper offers some discussion about development in the extended perspective of sustainability. While development, in any definition, typically refers to bringing improving something now, there is an obvious need to extend the meaning to sustaining improvements into the future. The paper offers a conceptual model for ‘ICT for sustainable freedom (or ICT4SF)’, as comprised of five types of actions, action-for and action-forward, action-in, action-with, and action-on. The paper contributes to research by extending the discussion about development by a perspective to the future.
