The Politics of World Communication

By Cees J. Hamelink - 1994

This book examines the political processes and decisions that determine the global communication environment. Underlying the study is a fundamental concern with communication as an issue of human rights. Do the standards agreed on world communication address the interests of ordinary people in their everyday lives? To address this question, the author analyses whether the political arrangements of the world community measure up to the standards set by international human rights law. Following the analysis and assessment, the book concludes with a proposal for a political practice inspired by the recognition of people's right to communicate.

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.
