Mark Graham delivers the Kapuscinski Development Lecture in Tartu, speaking on the Internet and development.

The Internet means access to information; it also means voice and representation. But many communities around the world, particularly in developing nations, lack such access. This can be a huge barrier in meaningful and transformative public participation. Mark Graham of the Oxford Internet Institute will explore at his #KAPTalks the digital gap and how to conquer it once and for all.

The Kapuscinski Development Lectures are organized jointly by the European Commission, the United Nations Development Programme and partner universities and development think-tanks. They are named for Ryszard Kapuscinski, a Polish reporter and writer who covered developing countries. The lecture series offers students from the European Union member states an unprecedented opportunity to learn and discuss about development issues such as climate change, human rights, aid effectiveness, Europe-Africa relations, Millennium Development Goals among other. The high-level events contribute to the debate and formulation of the European development policy.
