Communication Policy & Technology Section
The CP&T Section’s focus is on communication policy, with a keen interest in the socio-economic aspects of technological change. The Section welcomes theoretical and empirical studies and research that bridges theory and practice, by offering scientific reflection as well as guidelines for political action. The CP&T Section does not adhere to any single philosophical or theoretical school but encourages research that is critical.
This Section encompasses work on issues of policy and technology involving internet governance; the implications of globalisation for the use of emerging technologies, interfaces between culture, technology and policy, the potential of people-centred design and innovation, as well as critical analyses of ICT and telecommunication policies. There is also a developing interest in the implications of embedded and ubiquitous ICT technologies for citizens’ rights, privacy and justice.
