More or Less Equal: How Digital Platforms Can Help Advance Communication Rights

By Philip Lee, Dafne Sabanes Plou - 2014

More or Less Equal: How Digital Platforms Can Help Advance Communication Rights edited by Philip Lee and Dafne Sabanes Plou asks what challenges this development poses for societies worldwide. What ethical questions does it raise? The book explores these questions against a background of rapid technological change and with the aim of strengthening the communication rights of all people everywhere.

The book suggests that today's digital platforms offer the tantalizing possibility of learning and taking into account opinions from the margins that contradict the dominant voices in the public sphere. The concept of citizen journalism has radically altered traditional news and information flows, encouraging greater interaction and interdependence.

The book’s essays include such topics as ethical challenges and social media, communication networks in Latin America, women’s access to social media networks, media ethics and citizen journalism, and the gender dimensions of communication rights.

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.
