World Communication and Information Report

The media and the challenge of the new technologies

UNESCO's World Communication and Information Report 1999-2000 was released on November 11, 1999.

The 18 articles of the Report give an overview on the development of information and communication technologies and their sociocultural impacts, in an environment where economic concentration, technical integration and business mega-mergers are the keywords. UNESCO's World Communication and Information Report 1999-2000 can be obtained in print format through UNESCO's publishing house. It is available on this site under the option 'The Report'.

The World Communication and Information Report 1999-2000 discusses issues such as freedom of the media, the role of public-service broadcasting, editorial independence, the use of the Internet in education, cultural pluralism, worldwide access to information resources, challenges to the intellectual property and censorship on the Internet.

It addresses the impact of information and communication technologies on human development and the role that governments should play in this respect.

Regional chapters examine to what extent, newspapers, radio, television, telecommunications, computers and the Internet reach developed and developing countries, urban and rural areas, literates and illiterates, the rich and the poor.

The Report features selected statistics on the development of communication and information throughout the world.
