Personal profile

G. Hari Harindranath is a Professor of Information Systems in the Department of Digital Innovation & Management, School of Business & Management at Royal Holloway, University of London. Hari holds a doctorate in Information Systems from the London School of Economics and his research centres on the social and organisational implications of digital technologies, including ICT for development.

 

Hari is Co-Investigator on the 5-year (2019-2024, £20 million), UKRI GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub, led by Coventry University. He is the Royal Holloway lead for the work package (£670,000) on  ‘Digital technologies, inequality and migration'. Working with Co-I, Prof Tim Unwin (Geography and the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D Chairholder), this work package seeks to understand the extent and ways through which the application of ICTs has alleviated or exacerbated existing inequalities in the context of South-South migration, as well as successes and challenges facing the use of ICT for migrant-related development outcomes. It also considers how the potential benefits of ICT can be leveraged to ensure that the developmental benefits of migration are harnessed and increased, particularly through reducing inequalities in ICT access and use.
