WSIS: Articulating Information at the Summit

By Annabelle Sreberny - 2004

This brief article examines WSIS as a staging of transnational political communication. Playing with the acronym, it explores a number of moments of articulation and contradiction within the WSIS process, including gender imbalance, the politics of the inside and the outside, the space between rhetoric and action, and the lack of media coverage of a media-focused event. It suggests that WSIS is as relevant for western publics as for southern publics, and that the articulation of civil society within WSIS can be seen as the globalizing of radical democracy.

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.
