LIRNEasia’s overall mission of actionable research seeks to identify the institutional constraints to effective use of information and communication technologies to improve the lives of the people of Asia, not in abstract terms but in the context of specific historical and institutional conditions, and to catalyze the changes conducive to greater participation by users and suppliers. This requires that the agents promoting evidence-based policy making and regulation be in situ, either in terms of the specific country or the region.
Having achieved a fair degree of success in its work in the first five years, as documented in our Five-Year Review, LIRNEasia now wishes to address more deeply the question of the contributions ICTs can make to innovations conducive to economic growth and poverty alleviation.
