Centros Multimédia Comunitários em Moçambique: um mapa

The White Paper in Portuguese “Centros Multimédia Comunitários em Moçambique: um mapa”, edited by Isabella Rega and Lorenzo Cantoni and researched by Sara Vannini, Salomão David, Alexandre Baia and Gertrudes Macueve, has now been published!
The paper presents the history, typologies and number of Community Multimedia Centres in Mozambique, as well as the description of a sample of 10 of them, one per each province of the country. The information provided has been collected within the field work of the project RE-ACT (Social REpresentations of community multimedia centres and ACTions for improvement), a research and development project run by the NewMinE Lab in collaboration with the Centre for African Studies and the Department of Mathemathics and Informatics of the University Eduardo Mondlane, Maputo, Mozambique.
