The focus of this article is on the lack of political and economic context in the WSIS discourse. It points out that the official WSIS final texts do not refer to the already existing international agreements for information and communication, which render most of the WSIS recommendations exercises in futility. The author concludes that unless fundamentally new governance institutions are created, all the WSIS visions and proposals are destined to fail.
