【Lecture 1】
Dr. Christine Mbabazi Mpyangu
‘Technology as a threat to African values and Norms’

<Abstract>
Technology has found its place on the globe generally and on the
African continent
in particular. It is influencing almost all spheres of life in different
ways. It is appreciated as an answer to several challenges of development,
education, job execution among many others in society.
Regardless of that, technology is seen as a threat to African values and norms.
This is on the premise that many people’s life styles have greatly been
affected by the available services, devices and applications for consumption.
African values and norms of togetherness, marriage, family life,
relationships, work ethics and interaction as well as means of instruction
are gradually being forgotten, neglected, despised and undermined by the
people and especially the young generation. This discussion is aimed at
sharing the level to which technology is appreciated on one hand and much
more highlight how it is emerging as a threat to African values and norms.
An attempt to discuss how this threat can be mitigated is also made.

【Lecture 2】
Mr. Gordon Ainebyona
‘An Asset or Liability? The Impact of New Technology on the Contemporary
Society’

<Abstract>
The advancements in technology have not only brought changes in our society,
but also the environment of crime which in some of its new forms poses a
serious threat to society. There is no doubt that the widespread use of
personal computers and high speed internet significantly increases computer
related crimes. Whereas the criminals have exploited the new technologies
to facilitate and maximise criminal activities, the criminal justice system
on the other hand uses it to control criminal activities.
Although high technology crimes are becoming increasingly sophisticated, the
law enforcement agencies in most countries appear to be ill prepared
to confront
the challenge. Unlike the individuals from the developed nations who have
benefited from the use of technology, the citizens from low income countries
are counting the cost. The contest between the state and the criminals to
gain technological edge therefore creates urgency to the need to develop
appropriate responses to technology related crimes.
