Information Revolution and Global Politics

This series explores the interplay of the information revolution and global politics. It is particularly concerned with the ways in which social power shapes the design and control of technologies and, conversely, how those technologies affect wider power dynamics beyond the boundaries of the ICT sector. These dual analytical concerns are addressed in three thematic arenas: National ICT Policies, with special attention to the challenges facing developing countries in the transition to globalization and market liberalization; The Global Governance of ICT, including the political economy of both traditional intergovernmental regimes and organizations and nongovernmental/multistakeholder arrangements and policy networks for telecommunications, the Internet, and information; and International Relations and Digital Diplomacy, including the information revolution’s impact on the structures, actors, and power dynamics that shape world affairs, and on the conduct of foreign policy, international security, and international economic policies.The series features volumes that bridge the gaps that often have hindered analytical and policy progress in this arena, such as those between different academic disciplines, between scholars and policy practitioners (in government, business, and civil society), and between North American and international perspectives. It examines the ways in which ICTs are embedded in and affect social institutions and relationships; purely technical studies are not included. While theoretical concerns are explored, the series gives particular emphasis to studies that will be of interest to both scholars and diverse policy-oriented audiences.This series has concluded.
