Deconstructing the Digital Divide

New Zealand Work Research Institute (AUT) will launch its latest findings from The World Internet Project New Zealand alongside InternetNZ’s position paper Solving Digital Divides Together. You are invited to listen to the latest research covering patterns of Internet use and deconstructing the digital divides in New Zealand. 

InternetNZ’s position paper talks about the ways New Zealanders are experiencing digital divides and while people are excluded from meaningful use of the Internet, we are failing our most vulnerable.

The World Internet Project New Zealand (WIPNZ) is a global collaborative project looking at the social, political and economic impact of the Internet and other technologies. 

WIP is a longitudinal survey investigating New Zealanders' usage of, and attitudes towards the Internet. It is part of an international project that compares the uptake and social impacts of ICT in more than 40 partner countries and tracks the trends that occur. This event will launch the latest research from WIPNZ, in conjunction with the international project, aiming to provide information and insight that can assist in community development, and in policy decision-making.

The event was a starting point to encourage action from government, civil society, and the Internet community, to work together to reduce the effects of digital divides in Aotearoa.

Presented by:

  • Dr. Angsana A. Techatassanasoontorn, Associate Professor of Business Information Systems at AUT.
  • Antonio Diaz Andrade, Head of the Business Information Systems Department at AUT
  • Dr. Ellen Strickland, Policy Director at InternetNZ

This event was co-hosted jointly by the NZ Work Research Institute (AUT) and InternetNZ.

Here is the live-stream recording from this event.
