Technology Justice presents an alternative future, in which technological innovation creates more equitable access to technology and sustainable use of technology. It makes the case for an urgent change of direction in order to realize this different future, and the need for a renewed focus on building strong national innovation systems, a greater role for the state in R&D and new market rules to achieve this.
It calls individuals and organizations to action: to collaborate in building evidence and knowledge of fairer development and application of technology; to raise voices together to challenge the status quo and demand change. It calls for new alliances and partnerships, in order to forge a new path for technology and innovation, as part of a movement for Technology Justice.
