Abstract

According to Douglass C. North, the 1993 Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences, institutional factors are more important than technological or demographic factors in the economic and social development of a country. While the demand for knowledge on institution building for information and communication technology for development (ICTD) is increasing, knowledge sharing among the countries in the Asia-Pacific region on this subject is not sufficient. For example, although policymakers in developing countries recognize the need for ICTD policy and programmes, they tend to fail in the development of institutional capacity that is appropriate for their political environment and policy context. What is really needed, therefore, is not merely formal or theoretical knowledge, but useful knowledge that combines comparative studies on relevant countries and in-depth analysis of success stories. This is what is meant by knowledge sharing in this series. (The rest omitted)
