Communicating in the Information Society

By Bruce Girard, Seán Ó Siochrú - 2003

The contributions in this book cast a spotlight into the dark, often neglected corners of the 'information society' as articulated in the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). Seven chapters expose several very different layers, from the philosophical underpinnings of the role of information in society to the context and manner in which the concept has emerged into global consciousness. Contributors include Fackson Banda, James Deane, Kunda Dixit, Jean-Claude Guédon, Cees J. Hamelink, William McIver Jr., Njojo Mue, Dafne Sabanes Plou, Anonio Pasquali, Marc Raboy, and Silvio Waisbord.

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
