Interest in the relationship between Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in the context of electoral and change politics in Africa has intensified recently among donors, scholars, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). This book takes a critical look at claims, developments and initiatives linking CSOs, new media, and democracy. Based on research carried out among urban political non-governmental actors in Nairobi and Lusaka, and observations of trends in the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, the author argues that ICTs enhance the efficiency and operations of CSOs and make it easier for them to overcome ideological and other state obstacles but that states still remain powerful controllers of key instruments of dominance thus making real impact of new media minimal.
