In this talk, Professor Warigia Bowman examines the policymaking and implementation processes for information and communication technologies (“ICT”) in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda from 1990 to 2015.  The efforts to write ICT policies in four East African nations have brought to the fore issues of modernization and distribution in each nation. These efforts have forced researchers in the ICT arena to pay attention to issues of agenda setting, interest group interaction and negotiation between the government and other policy actors.
