Central concepts: duress, connectivity, and mobility
Definitions of central concepts:
Duress: the internalization of hardship and violence that are a result of oppression, conflict and war and its often long and deep history. Originally a notion from the discipline of jurisprudence, duress (or in French, contrainte), refers to a state in which a person’s ability to choose is hindered and/or a person’s options are limited or have decreased. Hence, when using the notion of duress, we refer to a situation of constraint limiting the agency of a person.
Connectivity: is defined in relation to ICTs, but not only new ICTs; it is the act of connecting; the assumption is that increased connectivity leads to changing flows of information and communication that informs people’s perceptions and agency.
Mobility: is the physical movement of people, but we also consider virtual mobility.
