    Dr. Nour (UNU-MERIT) is mentioned in an excerpt from this Bloomberg article:

    Dr. Samia Nour’s new book, Information and Communication Technology in Sudan: An Economic Analysis of Impact and Use in Universities, explores the dual implications of technological change, i.e. creative-destruction effects and positive-negative impacts.

    The book focuses on two issues: the positive impact of ICT in facilitating production, creation and transfer of knowledge in Sudanese universities; and the negative impact of ICT in creating a digital divide, adding a new dimension to the existing challenges of inequalities and disparities in Sudan.
