From the beginning of mankind, communication between people was the fundamental circumstance of self-realization of man and socio-economic development. The right to communicate in this sense is a natural human right. But, in our present-day world, communication has increasingly become an influential aspect of international relations. If we want above all to clarify the concept of the right to communicate, we will need a generally recognized methodological approach. Against the background of the discussions on the right to communicate, it seems very necessary to analyze more in depth the international dimensions of this concept, especially the interrelationship between the right and such fundamental principles of international law as sovereign equality, non-interference, self-determination and international cooperation. To date, the right remains unclear and unrecognized; it calls for further analysis and elaboration.
