My main research interest is to understand under what circumstances ICTs add value in processes that build the critical-agency and emancipatory capacities of individuals and collectives engaged in transformative development and social justice.

My field research involved using participatory video to create spaces for women in Zambia to engage critically with issues constraining their development. I am using critical ethnography and drawing upon critical social theory especially Friere's critical pedagogy.

Tony was previously Lecturer in Innovation Studies at University of East London.
