Common knowledge: How access to information and ideas can drive development

By Panos Institute - 2007

All human development is based on the acquisition, spread and use of knowledge.

Unequal access, on the other hand, can create injustice – particularly when based on economic disparity. This briefing outlines the main arguments supporting knowledge as a tool for development, focusing on the key sectors shaping and influencing people’s lives.
