Communicating in the Information Society
From the Foreword
It seemed fitting, on the occasion of the first World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)—which is also the first UN-sponsored world summit to specifically seek the formal participation of civil society—for UNRISD to emphasize the importance of societal perspectives on information society debates. It invited Bruce Girard and Seán Ó Siochrú of Communication Rights in the Information Society (CRIS), a civil society organization active in the WSIS process, to select and edit a collection of essays on what they saw as core issues. This volume is the result.
