The project will generate evidence of how rapid digitalisation of public service delivery due to the pandemic has shaped the lives of those already living in exclusion (especially women) in three countries – Peru, India and Tanzania. It will examine the extent to which digital policies and practices are increasing inequalities among women and limiting the realisation of their economic and social rights.
Its aim is to give those working on issues of digital access, at the country and global level, evidence on interventions and practical insights for policy reform and global cooperation to reduce the gender technological divide.
In the video above , three researchers from the Southern Voice network introduce new research on ways in which the transition to further digitization during the pandemic have impacted public service delivery across the Global South.
