WhatsApp for Social Activism in Ethiopia? Preliminary Research Findings
Launched by the Department of State in 2013, Diplomacy Lab is a public-private partnership that enables the State Department to “course-source” research and innovation related to foreign policy challenges by harnessing the efforts of students and faculty experts at colleges and universities across the United States. Dr. Devendra Potnis, Jeni Trimmer, and Jamie Cleek of the University of Tennessee along with Dawit Demissie from The Sage Colleges are researching the implications of using WhatsApp for social activism. Their study highlights Ethiopia now and will highlight other areas as their research progresses. You can read more about their research and findings by following the link here.
