Blurb/Shorttext:
Technological apartheid is a term that refers to the denial of useful modern technologies to Third World or Developing nations. The term is based upon the South African expression Apartheid, which refers to the practice of keeping certain populations in a separate, lower-class status. It has been used to describe situations that are unintended, such as the absence of computers and Information technology in the favelas of Brazil or other impoverished areas. The term also applies to the deliberate denial of technology for geopolitical or neocolonialist reasons. The government of Iran has characterized the efforts by Western governments to deny nuclear technology to Iran as Technological Apartheid.
