Abstract
Research on developing economies has largely ignored the possibilities for shifting the center

Kenya is not only characterized by large inequalities but is currently striving towards building
a national innovation system. The country was therefore selected to examine whether ICTs are
affecting inclusive development. The results accentuate the urgent need for further research as
they are indicative for positive implications of ICTs on inclusiveness... (More)
