n Mousaion - Complexities in understanding and developing information ethics in Africa

Volume 31, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0027-2639



In this article the complexities in understanding and developing information ethics in Africa are discussed, also through PEST analysis, using the authors' experience as Africans by largely interrogating African philosophical and ethics studies, and through discussions with eminent African scholars in this field. The research is aimed at informing African information ethics studies and establishing the uniqueness of African information ethics. The authors argue that there will be information ethics solely pursued in Africa, given its geographical, historical, cultural and technological background and development, but this does not isolate such information ethics from the rest of the world, provided interaction occurs between Africa and the rest of the world.
