IT/social change research is concerned with the design, use, and effects of information and communication technologies in communities facing social and economic challenges. These communities face technology barriers that may be overcome through culturally-relevant training programs, utilization of mobile technologies, and leveraging information hubs such as telecenters or libraries.

Evaluating how social networks and assistance from publically available resources such as libraries and telecasters are used to prepare for, respond to, and recover from catastrophic events. Applying smart cites to rural and remote areas that have no and/or intermittent access to national Social networks, can be both expensive and logistically challenging. Protecting against both aspects is important in guaranteeing grid usability, trust, and reliability which are needed to ensure social stability.

Global crises not only deeply impact the economy and people's livelihoods, they also unsettle basic ideas and assumptions about the meaning and drivers of development. This collection of theoretical and empirical studies explores the substance and politics of policy change following crises from the perspective of developing countries.

The Special Issue will include innovative approaches, methods, application and techniques and will be based on best papers submitted; only high-quality, original scientific contributions will be considered and selected for publication. Our objective is to publish the latest new trends and advancements in the related topics.
