Rethinking connectivity as interactivity: a case study of Pakistan

Nadeem Haque (), Ahmed Pirzada () and Vaqar Ahmed ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Connectivity in developing countries has traditionally been viewed in terms of investment in transport and communications. This papers makes an effort to go beyond this traditional view and conceptualizes connectivity as networks between people and places. We split the overall national reforms agenda for connectivity into three prongs: a) transportation and related services, b) ICT, and c) social capital. We try to see the state of each of these three in case of Pakistan and then propose reforms keeping in view the current political economy milieu.
