Title: Public access to ICT and employment : case of the impact of public access to ICT skills on job prospects in Rwanda
Authors: Damascène, M. Jean

Keywords: ICT
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: The modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is widely seen by countries as a major drive for their socio-economic development. This is demonstrated by huge investments put in ICT projects. Despite such investments, less is done to evaluate the impact of the access to ICT in specific sectors such as employment. This paper presents a study which intends to evaluate the impact of ICT skills acquired from public access ICT venues on job prospects in Rwanda. A mixed method approach is adopted to carry out the investigation. The study is in progress such that the paper does not present any findings, but the study is expected to contribute to the improvement of our understanding of the impact of public access to ICT and to have a potential public policy impact.
