About the Community Informatics Research Network (CIRN)

Community Informatics is primarily concerned with improving the well-being of people and their communities through more effective use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The Community Informatics Research Network (CIRN) came into being in 2004 as the result of activity by global ground of academics and practitioners and an international colloquium in 2003.

Community Informatics foregrounds social change and transformative action in emergent social-technical relationships, rather than prediction and control. Likewise, Development Informatics or ICT4D is concerned with ICTs in the international development context.
