Thu Dec 06 01:51:54 GMT 2012

The Mona ICT Policy Centre, University of the West Indies, Mona is pleased to announce the newly published edited volume */Ringtones of Opportunity: Policy, Technology and Access in Caribbean Communications, edited by Professor Hopeton S. Dunn./*

Ringtones of Opportunity is one of the first books to present scholarly research on liberating opportunities offered by information and communications technologies in the Caribbean and the global south. While acknowledging challenges of policy implementation and technology adaptation, the book nevertheless identifies a range of empowering development options in media literacy, e-fisheries, m-banking, mobile telephony, m-agriculture, teleworking, techno-driven environmental strategies and intellectual property reform.

More broadly, Ringtones of Opportunity explores the region's pre-liberalization challenges and the ups and downs of post-liberalization mobile competition in Caribbean telecommunications.
