The application and consequences of e-governance for India's fight against urban poverty

DFG-Projekt Ursula Rao, 2012-2014

This project studies the deployment of biometric registration and social data bases for the delivery of welfare in India. It examines how social processes, local cultures and survival strategies shape these initiatives. What can be learned from the implementation phase of these path-finding social security schemes in third world conditions?
