Abstract:This report presents the findings of preliminary research on the effects and meaning of the mobile phone in Sudan. It was conceptualized as a pilot study in the framework of collaboration between the African Studies Centre Leiden and the telecommunications company Zain starting in 2007. The report focuses mainly on end-user interpretations of the introduction of the mobile phone, the interface between the mobile phone and socioeconomic relations, and the creative uses of the mobile phone. A second line of inquiry has been business people and mobile phone markets, including trading networks and the obstacles and successes of the mobile phone market. Three case study areas were selected for the study: Khartoum, Karima and Juba. [ASC Leiden abstract]
