Layman's description

Hari is Co-Investigator on the 5-year (2019-2024), UK government funded, UKRI GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub, led by Coventry University. He is the lead for the work package, ‘Leveraging ICT to address inequality and development in the context of South-South migration’. Working with 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.
