CSEND Technical Notes


This rubric contains technical notes which focus on the intersection of theory and practice. The goal is to inform the practitioners of the underlying theory constructs of tools, instruments or techniques applied in the field of development; and is to generate feedback to the theorists for eventual use in their conceptualisations.

This note is structured into five parts. Part I presents a theoretic review of relevant literature related to the topic of the workshop. Part II describes some case examples from field then followed with action based practices in various cultural contexts (Part III). Part IV summarises the lessons learnt.

The purpose of this article was to identify the new key geopolitical and economic power factors related to “data control” and governments’ capacity to move from personal data control to event forecasting capability.
