Abstract [en]

This article discusses the challenges of disseminating

information using ICTs (Information

and Communication Technologies) in postconflict

countries like Sierra Leone and focuses

on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's

(TRC) findings. The TRC findings were meant

to promote an understanding of the crimes

that were committed against the innocent civilians

during the war, and to contribute to the

prevention of future atrocities. It particularly

looks at the most marginalized groups, namely,

women and children. The TRC findings were

published in both a book and electronic form.

Some simpler versions of the findings were

also published by some NGOs but nevertheless,

the diffusion of information into parts

of the society where it is needed mostly has

been inadequate. The Internet is a medium

used to disseminate information effectively

from one to many. The electronic version of the

findings is available on the Internet but access

to it requires information skills and access to

ICTs. It is argued that lack of ICTs and information

skills is an obstacle to the empowerment

of women and children in Sierra Leone,

which also hinders sustainable development.
